8th Grade Photo Collage
It’s an exciting time of the year. Eighth graders are about to leave the middle school and move on up to the high school. They will be a part of the Yellow Jacket team! While this year has been different than any other before we want to celebrate our 8th graders and all of their accomplishments these past three years. In order to do that we NEED YOUR HELP!
Please send in 1-2 pictures of your 8th grader from this past year to their TSA/Homeroom teacher. It can be of them doing anything that they enjoy. It does NOT have to be school related, just school appropriate. We need these pictures by May 19th.
Thanks for helping us celebrate our fantastic 8th graders!
