Promotion Ceremony Dress Code

2024 CEREMONY DRESS CODE - Sinaloa's 8th Grade Promotion is a dignified ceremony. Students are being presented to members of the school board, district leadership, and most importantly, the community at large. Students should be dressed in a way that is interview appropriate, often described as "business casual." Examples of such attire would include dresses or dress pants/shirts for female students, and dress pants or slacks and a collared shirt for male students. Ties and jackets are optional. Note that all students will be sitting outside in the sun for a time and walking a distance to their chairs. Comfortable shoes and adequate coverage from the sun are STRONGLY recommended.
