We are just around the corner from your student becoming a freshman at HHS! I bet you feel like time has passed while you weren't looking and your child is suddenly on the verge of becoming a young adult. This transition to high school has several things that are traditional "rights of passages" for our students, including a trip to Cedar Point this Friday and the 8th Grade Party on May 31.
We are seeking donations for the 8th grade party. We have traditionally been able to give about all of the students in the class a commemorative souvenir (this year a t-shirt with all of their names on it), some snacks and games, a DJ, and about half have received a small gift card (Subway, iTunes, Cone Zone, Culvers, etc.). This year we are hoping to add a photo booth to the fun. All of these things are only possible through your generous support and donations.
The party hours are 7-10 pm on Friday, May 31 and we are looking for helpers and volunteers that can set up, chaperone, and clean up. We will also need parents to help run some of the games that we have for the students. This night is your child's last chance to be together, as a class, with the entire 8th grade. We expect about 95% of the group to attend and really need a lot of help to manage the night and make it fun and safe for everyone.
Please consider donating either your time, a gift card ($5-$10 would be great), or a cash contribution (checks can be made out to Haslett Middle School) to make this evening all that it can be for your child. Time is growing very short and we appreciate knowing that we have your support in this endeavor. You can sign up to volunteer by emailing Mona Kay Woodhams at
and putting parent volunteer in the subject line. You are always welcome to come in that evening and see how things are going. Donations can be dropped off at the main office of HMS.
We look forward to hearing from you and congratulate you, in advance, of your child's completion of this leg of the HPS journey.
