8th Grade Families: Important information regarding graduation Graduation events cannot happen without the support of our entire Olympus community. All of the activities we have in place for graduation are dependent upon donations from families. The PTC will help to defray the cost of as much of the graduation related event expenses as possible. The remaining costs will need to be covered by donations. We are asking all 8th grade families to make a $75 donation to help cover the cost of gowns, the celebration luncheon, and Discovery Kingdom tickets and transportation. You may use our Webstore to make your donation or submit a check to the office. Please make your donations no later than Friday, May 12th. To ensure every student who meets graduation requirements may participate in the celebrations, a limited number of scholarships are available - please contact Mr. Healy for more information.
To help facilitate and organize the tremendous support we receive for our students, we are using the Sign-Up Genius website. Please click on this link to find a way to help!
We thank you in advance and appreciate all of your help since "many hands make for light work.”
World Expo Information:
7th Grade Families: World Expo is a culminating activity when all 7th Grade Core classes adopt a specific unit from our World History studies. Students will be working in groups to create booths to sell handmade artifacts/products from their culture. They will also offer either a food or a game that might have been played; and will be dressed in the attire of their culture as well. Parent volunteers are a huge part of the success of this event! Please consider helping out by volunteering or donating to this exciting day! If you are able to make donations, please bring your donated items on Monday, June 5th or Tuesday June 6th.
