Recently there was a flyer handed out to eighth-graders giving the schedule for the last couple days of school. It has information for eighth graders such as practice for promotion and exit interviews. At the bottom of the page, there is a paragraph about what students should wear to graduation. After receiving the flyers and talking to people around campus, many students disliked what it said.

Recently there has been a lot of talk about how dress codes tend to mostly target female students.

As almost any Stacey student would know, the Washington D.C trip is one enjoyed by many eighth graders over spring break. For six days, students adventured through Virginia, Pensylvania, and New York. Here is the breakdown of their journey throughout the East Coast.

Virginia/ Washington D.C.

After getting off their red-eye flight, Stacey students immediately began their exploration of D.C. On their first day, students got to see Ford’s Theatre, the place of the historic Lincoln assassination, the Holocaust Museum, and Arlington National Cemetary.

Sixth and seventh graders don’t have to worry about their service hours until they get into eighth grade unless they are in AVID or NJHS, and then they are required to do additional service hours.  More…
