8th Grade Night with the Hawks, Friday, September 21!! (8th grade students only!)
The 8th grade students have been invited to attend a half time performance at a Hendrickson Hawk Friday night Football Game on September 21nd!! Below is the ‘least you need to know’…(more information here: 8th Grade Night 2018)
-8th Grade students should have filled out the ‘information card’ that was given to them by the HHS directors. Mr. Atkinson says he will accept them through Monday. (This is so they can have an accurate count for pizza and T-shirts).
-8th Grade students will stay after school. We will walk together to HHS.
-HHS will provide a pizza/drink dinner (if your child has dietary restrictions, please reach out to the HHS Band Boosters : Christy Anderson email@example.com or plan to provide dinner for them).
-8th Grade students will need to take everything they need for the weekend as they will NOT be returning to KLMS
-Parent Pick Up is at “THE PFIELD” ! At approximately 9pm. They can not return to the HHS band after half time. If your child will be staying for the remainder of the game, they will need parent supervision.
*Sectionals are going GREAT! 7:00am-8:00am
