8th Grade Graduation Monday June 16th at Conard 8th Grade Graduation Party, Monday June 16 at Sedgwick

The party will be at SMS directly after the graduation from 7:30 – 10:00 pm.  We need people to help set up from 3-5 the day of the party and to work the party 7:30 – 10:00 p.m.; parents willing to bake goodies for the event, to donate drinks or snack size bags of chips, to help defray the cost of food.  

We would also love to have gift cards donated for prizes- $5 and $10 denominations are best so we can have many prizes- places that the kids can walk to are most appreciated!
7th Grade parents are also needed to help cover the last minute party set-up from 6:30–7:00 pm while the 8th grade parents are at graduation. Dads, consider coming to be a Bouncer at the Bouncer for an hour…

We hope to have all students attend and to make this a memorable event to finish of their time at SMS!
