Promotion Ceremony Dress Code

2023 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.

8th Grade Promotion Flowers and Gifts

Flowers and gifts are available to order from The Commencement Group. Items are picked up at Sinaloa the morning of the ceremony.
