CLASS OF 2021: Presentations, portraits and online video from the promotion ceremony

Due to technical difficulties, the District was unable to livestream Blackhawk Middle School's Eighth Grade Promotion Ceremony Thursday evening. The ceremony was recorded, though, and the production company is preparing it to be shared online next week. We apologize for this inconvenience, and will share the video with you once it is posted online.

Also, be on the lookout for messages about the portraits taken during the ceremony. The District partnered with Tintype, a Bensenville-based photography company, to ensure that links to proofs of your child's photos are sent directly to you via email and text message. From that link, you will be able to choose what you'd like to purchase, place your order, and have it mailed to your home within 10 days. Numerous options are available, but Tintype has a special graduation package for our families; for $25, choose two of any of the following:

  • 1 print - 8x10
  • 2 prints - 5x7
  • 4 prints - 3x5
  • 8 wallet-sized prints
