**Parents please make sure students are in school on days when their grade is MCAS testing. If you anticipate your child will be absent, please contact Ms. Moberg to let her know.

Glow in the Dark Family Dance: April 12th

The Hampden PTO is excited to welcome students and their families to our upcoming "Glow in the Dark" family dance. We have a fantastic DJ who will play all the kid’s favorite songs and will help get the kids on the dance floor. We will also have a Photo Booth to capture pics of the kids and their friends. All are welcome and we hope to have a great turnout. Permission slips need to be returned by 4/8/19 so PTO can get a head count for the purpose of purchasing snacks and water. Students in grades PK-5 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. Students in grades 6-8 do not need to be accompanied by an adult.
