dont change graduation date
I am asking for you to sign this petition to be presented to the Board of Education at the next meeting over our objections of moving the graduation from the original day of Friday June 10 to Monday June 13. This move has created a tremendous amount of anxiety in my house as my daughter graduation was already set for Monday June 13 when Galloway Schools decided to move 8th grade to the same night and the same time. The Board of Ed decided to approve the calendar in having the last scheduled day of school on Monday the 13th, but we would like to still have the graduation ceremony on Friday June 10. I know as a parent even if I didn't have this HUGE obstacle in our lives, I still would rather have graduation on a Friday night as opposed to a Monday. This way everyone can relax and enjoy the night and not worry about getting up for work the next day. To reinstate, the graduation has and had been set for Friday June 10 for over a year now, so people were already planning that day. They have already decided to add the extra day so kids have to go back on Monday anyway, lets all be able to celebrate on Friday night.
