Looking For Local Business Sponsorships To Help Support 8th Grade Celebration/Party
Since Dieringer does not have a high school, when kids graduate from 8th grade they are entering a new phase of life with new friends and new experiences. We are trying to raise enough money to celebrate them and need your help. The graduation committee is looking for local businesses to help sponsor 8th grade graduation. With a $250 donation your business logo will be in the graduation program for all families to see. Our hope is that in return our 8th grade families will support your business! Is your business willing to help us out? If you know of a business that may not see this please reach out to them. We need the donations by Thursday May 25th but the sooner the better! If you have questions you can email Tamara @ firstname.lastname@example.org
Step 1) Donate - Online under graduation or Cash/Check made out to NTMS PTSA
Step 2) Email your logo or business name to Tamara by May 25th
All students can turn in service hours. We track them from 6th-8th grade. At the end of the 8th grade year, students are eligible for a special service award.
Service Hours tracking sheet can be found HERE

Message From the District Nurse
6th Grade Families: Tdap Vaccination is Required for 7th Grade Attendance!
Dear 6th grade families:
-Per Washington State law, all students attending 7th grade must have one dose of Tdap (Tetanus, diphtheria, and acellular pertussis) vaccine. Tdap vaccine must be given at or after age 10 to be accepted for school entry.
-Your child’s health care provider can print proof of vaccination for you, or you can print it from MyIR, which is a free Department of Health online tool that allows families to view and print their official immunization records themselves. Go to MyIRMobile to register for access to your family’s records.
-Please email this proof of vaccination to Kristin Liedtke, NTMS Health Tech, at email@example.com, or bring it to school during open office hours.
-Appointments for vaccines can be made at one of the resources listed here. Make appointments early, as vaccine appointments may be full in late August and in September! Other recommended vaccines may be offered by your provider.
*If your student has a Certificate of Exemption on file for the tetanus, diphtheria, and pertussis vaccine, this is still valid.
