8th Grade End of Year Information, 2024

Thu, 05/23/2024 - 9:18pm

Greetings, Families of Eighth Grade Students!

It's time to mark your calendars! This year we are excited to announce that we will once again be able to send off our eighth graders with several special activities. Please review the following dates and mark your calendars:

June 4, 2024 - High School visit to Glenelg

June 7, 2024 - Picnic at Piney Run Park

June 13, 2024 - 8th Grade Celebration which includes a ceremony, photo-op, student luncheon, and afternoon student social.

A special thanks to our PTSA for generously supporting our 8th grade end-of-year activities!  To offset the funding provided by the PTSA however, there will be a small fee associated with the three end-of-year events:

  • End-of-Year Activities 
    • Picnic at Piney Run Park 
    • 8th Grade Celebration at Glenwood Middle School
  • $25 per student will cover the costs associated with all of the end-of-year activities, including food. Financial support is available if needed; please notify Mrs. Shindel at melissa_shindel@hcpss.org.

With approximately 164 students in the eighth-grade class, it is essential that students are on their best behavior when participating in these activities. Please review the student behavior expectations letter we sent home on March 14, 2024.   If you have any questions regarding behavior expectations, please contact Mrs. Shindel, Mrs. Cassetta, or Mrs. Viens. 

We look forward to full student participation in all of the activities and will recruit parent chaperones for some of the events. More information will come home as the dates approach, but we thought you would appreciate an overview of the upcoming events for planning purposes. Please contact me if you have any questions.

We look forward to your continued support as we wrap up the school year!
