  • PLACE:   Sinaloa Middle School AmphitheaterThe amphitheater area does NOT provide shade. Unfortunately, the use of umbrellas is not permitted during the ceremony in order not to block the view of other guests. We will have some canopies set up in the back of the seating area. Water will be available for purchase.

Promotion Ceremony Dress Code


Our main objective with regard to dress for this occasion ceremony is to have a dignified ceremony and avoid any undue hardship on parents.  Please do not feel compelled to purchase special clothing for this occasion that could be too dressy for future practical use. Renting or purchasing formal attire is inappropriate.


  1. A dress that could be worn to a nice restaurant, to a religious ceremony or to a special show would be most satisfactory. Simple street-length dresses or skirts may be worn.
  2. All dresses should be modest and appropriate for this special family occasion. This is a MIDDLE SCHOOL promotion ceremony, and we do not want to deny anyone from participation due to inappropriate clothing.
  3. Shoes should be flat or have low heels due to walking on the grass.

**Hair styles and colors must follow guidelines listed in the agenda book.  Please remember that this is a middle-school ceremony, so salon hair-styles or “up-do’s” are not necessary. Non-naturally-occurring hair color is very distracting and takes away from the dignity and importance of the ceremony!


  1. Dress shirts and nice pants are to be worn by all boys. Ties are optional.
  2. A sport coat, jacket, suit coat or sweater is recommended. However, parents should not feel obligated to purchase suits or coats for this occasion.
  3. Shoes should be appropriate for school.
