The eighth grade Rise Ceremony is Monday, June 11th @ Deep Run High School. The ceremony will begin at 7:00PM, and all students should be present by 6:30PM.
We have over 300 eighth graders so the ceremony will take place in the gymnasium as it offers a larger seating capacity than the auditorium.
Three tickets will be provided to each student. The tickets will be distributed through Puma Den classes on June 6th.
Seating is limited.
IF three tickets will not suffice for your family, you may request additional ticket(s) by clicking here. Please only request additional tickets if it is a necessity for your family.

In honor of Virginia School Principals Appreciation Week, here’s a quick video shout-out to some of the principals that are making a difference in students’ lives!
National School Counseling Week, sponsored by the American School Counselor Association (ASCA), will be celebrated from Feb. 5–9, 2018, to focus public attention on the unique contribution of professional school counselors within U.S. school systems and how students are different as a result of what school counselors do. National School Counseling Week highlights the tremendous impact school counselors can have in helping students achieve school success and plan for a career.
The special week honoring school counselors provides recognition for school counselors who implement comprehensive school counseling programs, a vital part of the educational process for all students as they meet the challenges of the 21st century.
“School counselors work with all students to remove barriers to learning by addressing students’ academic concerns, career awareness in post-secondary options and social/emotional skills,” said Kwok-Sze Wong, Ed.D., ASCA executive director. “Comprehensive school counseling programs help to increase student achievement and provide a much-needed resource for students, parents, teachers and administrators. School counselors are integral to student success.”
More than 100,000 school counselors nationwide will be participating in the week’s festivities in order to call attention to the countless benefits of a comprehensive school counseling program.
Short Pump Middle School loves our school counselors! Thank you for all that you do Mrs. Ransom, Mrs. Coleman, and Mrs. Sharpe!
