Middle School Newsletter May/June 2012

The end of the school year is almost here. I am sure many of our kids are counting the days. There are still many more activities left in May and June. On May 1, Middle School students have their first surprise lunch. The Middle School is one of the last grades to have a surprise lunch and we hope they enjoy the special treatment. Cotton candy and ice cream sundaes are for Middle School students only! May 4 is the much anticipated Middle School social dance. Other upcoming events include the Solar Car Race for Class V on May 16, as well as their Step Up Ceremony on June 7. On June 8, there is a trip organized by the Nobles PA for both Middle School classes to go to Canobie Lake Park.

We would like to thank all of you for your help with the various events throughout the year. We feel very lucky to have such a great community of parents who are always willing to help. We hope you were able to join us for the spring parent socials. We want to thank the Rueppel family for hosting the Class V party and the Maroni family for hosting the Class VI party. We also want to thank everyone for their donations including the London family and The Boston Beer Company for the donation of Samuel Adams beer to the Class V Social.
