A New Start

Bye-Bye, Junior High is the sixteenth and final episode of Season 3 of Degrassi Junior High, and the forty-second and final episode overall. It aired on March 6, 1989.

Plot

It's the end of an era at Degrassi—the grade nines are going on to high school full time next year, and the grade eights will finally be kings of the school. Wheels can't see any way he'll pass this year, and Spike has some tough choices to make. It's going to be the graduation dance to end all graduation dances, but, you know, they never got that old boiler working quite right, and Scooter thinks he smells smoke. There were two incorrect decisions made by Scooter and Tessa. First one was they opened the boiler room door. Second was that they left the door open with about 4 flammable tanks by the door and by closing the door would have stop the flames from getting around the whole school.

Summary

Joey makes a deal with his parents...nothing below a B and he can go to the graduation dance. However, when he gets his report card, it turns out Joey got two As, four Bs, and one C. Realizing what this means, Joey cancels going to the dance with Caitlin, who is extremely upset and says she never wants to see him again. Joey reaches a compromise with his parents so he can go to the dance, and he brings Caitlin flowers, and they dance. And once everyone evacuates due to the fire, Caitlin is freaking out because she can't find Joey, and then he appears and she's relieved.

Wheels is worried he won't pass, but much to his surprise, he barely scrapes by, with leniency from teachers, given the death of his parents and his tremendous improvement in the last semester. Spike, however, wasn't so lucky. Ms. Avery suggests she take correspondence course to make up for her bad marks, because at Spikes current state, she wouldn't be in the academic program she deserves to be in. At first Spike says she doesn't want to go to school anymore, but Ms. Avery tells her to count her blessings--not everyone is fortunate enough to be able to have a baby like her. At the dance, Spike approaches Ms. Avery and asks to sign up for the correspondence programs.

  • Mr. Lawrence: "The final revision to the altered exam schedule has been changed."
