6th grade Grand Station Celebration Day

Dear Parents and Students,

As we finish the 2017-2018 school year, we are preparing for our end-of-the-year celebration. As a grade level, we will be going to Grand Station on May 30th from 10:00-1:00. We will have bowling (including shoe rental), laser tag and miniature golf. Students will eat a sack lunch before leaving for Grand Station. All students must meet the guidelines below in order to attend the Grand Station Celebration and the student/faculty basketball game. $15 per student is needed to cover Grand Station. Full payment for the field trip is due by May 18th. Please consider donating extra to those not able to afford this expense.


If any of the following occurs, a student will NOT be allowed to attend the field trip to Grand Station and the basketball game. We have gone over these guidelines with the students, and we ask that you review it with your student as well. Both you and your student need to sign the bottom of this page and return it to the Success teacher no later than Friday, April 20th, 2018. These guidelines are effective immediately. We expect every student to be on their best behavior always…

  1. No more than 2 disciplinary referrals after April 9th.

  2. Failing any core class/subject because of incomplete work or missing work for the 6th six weeks.

  3. No overdue library books or fines at all.

  4. Failure to return the signed form excludes your child from participating in the grade level celebration.

  5. ISS or OSS on the days of the celebrations will result in automatic exclusions from them.
