8th Grade Updated Graduation Information

Good morning.
In case you didn't see this announcement in the weekly note on Friday...

Greetings from Gurrie.

As we communicated several weeks ago, we have been considering whether or not to hold the Gurrie 8th grade graduation here at Gurrie, outside, or at an indoor location because of the possibility of weather conditions, the conflict with our rain date and LT’s graduation, and the emergence of the cicadas.

We have made the decision to hold the ceremony inside rather than outside this year in order to ensure that we do not have to possibly utilize the rain date Wednesday, May 29, which conflicts with Lyons Township graduation, and also the probability that the outside ceremony will be disrupted by the impending cicada invasion.

Our ceremony will take place at Local 150 banquet hall, 6200 Joliet Road in Countryside, on Tuesday, May 28, at 5 p.m. This venue will provide us with the room and opportunity to hold our ceremony, and after visiting the location, we will still be able to provide five tickets per family.  

More information to come home early next week. Thank you for your understanding. 

We have attached two additional documents for your review regarding the ceremony and events leading up to it.
