Monday, May 21st Deadline for 8th Grade Fun Day Permission Slips and Fees.   
All paperwork, permission slips, and fees are due to Ms. Nilsen in the cashier window by Monday, May 21st, for any 8th grade student who wants to attend the 8th Grade Fun Day at the Family Fun Center.  Paperwork will come home with all 8th grade students in late April, so be on the lookout for your 8th grade student's Fun Day Packet later this month.

Friday, May 25th : 8th Grade Baby Photo Deadline.   
All 8th grade students are allowed to submit 2 photos (usually submitted by their parents).  1 photo should be a "baby photo" from birth to age 5.  The second photo should be a recent photo showing a skill, hobby, or talent.  Families may choose to only submit one photo, but the maximum is 2 per 8th grade student.  *See the 8th Grade Fun Day and Celebration paperwork coming out in late April for more information. Its a great idea to begin working with your student to select photos now.
