8th Grade Fun Day, Wednesday, June 15th

The long-awaited 8th Grade Fun Day is Wednesday, June 15th from 11:00 -1:25pm. Fun Day will take place during the school day (after lunch), and 8th grade students will be released to go home at the normal Wednesday dismissal time.

On Fun Day, students will have the opportunity to participate in inflatable games. All students MUST HAVE a completed INFLATABLE PERMISSION FORM to participate. This year, the permission form is electronic.

Parents can complete the Inflatable Permission Form through this link: https://forms.microsoft.com/r/aTbGH0J4GP 

Students with permission forms completed by 10pm, June 14th will receive their inflatable wristbands before Fun Day. Students who have their permission form completed after 10pm on June 14th may have to wait in a line on Fun Day to pick up their inflatable wristband. Students without a permission form will not be allowed to use the inflatables.

Fun Day will include an inflatable obstacle course, a Ninja Light Battle (inflatable), 9-hole mini golf course, yard games (Can Jam, Cornhole, Spike Ball), a photo station and snacks provided by the PTSA, memory book/yearbook signing, sidewalk chalk, and the Sugar + Spoon truck will be on site to provide each student with a scoop of edible cookie dough and a scoop of ice cream (there are gluten free, dairy free and vegan options).  All inflatables and the treat truck are provided by ASB. To help with the cost of Fun Day, we are asking that families, who are able, pay a $10.00 suggested donation through the school online payment system. To pay the suggested donation, follow these steps:
