The day is getting closer and it is very exciting!!!
I know that some parents and students have questions about this day as it's new how we are doing it this year.

To start the day - There is no cost to the students all day and evening. They should not have to ask parents for any money to participate.

The day will start with their teachers and they have swimming at the field house for the students or a movie in theatre.

The Grade 8 Celebration is starting at 11am. It is for the students of Grade 8 and teachers only.
They have an opening ceremony in the field house and then at 11:30am they proceed to go outside for activities and a BBQ.
At the BBQ it will be hot dogs and hamburgers. It is really important that if your child is vegetarian and needs Veggie Burgers to send a message to Mad Gauvin to add their name on a list. Only those students on that list will be able to have the Veggie Burgers. The reason why? It is been donated to the school and for the amount needed.
The activities will be going all day outside with a DJ playing music outside. If it is raining, it will all take place in the field house.
The activities are until 2:30pm and then the students get ready to leave for the end of school day

Parents and students, are wondering if the students are meeting at the green (beside Duck's Unlimited) for pictures with their friends as previous years. THIS IS NOT SOMETHING THAT THE COMMITTEE LOOKS AFTER OR PLANS. I seen questions about it on our Facebook pages and yes, some students are planning of going and I don't see a time that they are planning to meet.

The Dance starts at 7:00pm. Not 6:30pm but 7:00pm as there was a miscommunication that was sent to some parents.
The dance is for the students and Teachers only. Not for parents to hang around. If you want to volunteer for Chaperone, I still need a few parents. Please send me an email at roseannelawrence1969@gmail.com
The students will needs to check in when they come in to ensure their name is on the list. Only students of NMS grade 8 is able to attend.
They will have a photo booth that will take pictures and the students will get a print out instantly. Again, there is no fee. We will also have a location for students to be able to take selfies or pictures with their own camera with some props.
A movie will be showing in the theatre (not sure of the title yet)
Popcorn table and a candy bar (no fee)
The dance will be in the cafeteria with a DJ.
The dance ends at 9:30pm and we want the parents to be on time for pick up.

If you have any other questions do not hesitate to email me or put it on our Facebook page. (Nashwaaksis Middle School Grade 8 Celebration)
