Eighth Grade Awards Assembly Information

Dear Parents and/or Guardians,

On Wednesday, June 12, 2024, we will recognize each of our students with our annual Eighth Grade Awards Assembly. This is not a graduation, but an acknowledgement of accomplishments of our present eighth graders. Students will be called by name as they enter the gym.

Our main concerns for Wednesday, June 12th, are parking and traffic congestion. Since this is a problem not easily fixed, we would like to appeal to your good judgment in this matter. If you are planning to attend, please adhere to the following guidelines:

  • Please try to carpool if possible.

  • Please be punctual. The assembly will begin at 9:00 am in the North Intermediate Gymnasium. It will end at 10:30 am.

  • You must leave the school campus by 10:40 am. If you would like to take your child/children with you, this slip must be signed and returned to their homeroom teacher no later than Friday, June 7, 2024.

  • Please park in the spaces which will be left for your convenience on the Middle School side of the campus.

Thank you for your cooperation.

If you have any questions, please contact Ron Ezzo at 226-4557 Ext. 3057.

Sincerely,

Ron Ezzo
8th Grade Level Coordinator

Attention Parents/Guardians: Peanut Allergies

This year we welcome several students to our school with allergies to peanuts and/or other nuts. We invite your help and cooperation to help them stay safe.

Reactions range from mild to life threatening. Any exposure to peanuts or nuts may cause an allergic reaction that requires emergency medical treatment. To reduce the chance of this occurring, we are asking that you do not send any peanut- or nut-containing products to school with your child that will be eaten in the classroom.

We look forward to working together with you to have a wonderful year. If you have any questions, please call Mary Ellen Olsheski, School Nurse, at (570) 226‑4557 ext. 3060.
