    8TH GRADE END-OF-THE-YEAR CELEBRATION

    On Thursday, June 7th we will have an End-of-the-Year Celebration with our 8th grade students at Driftwood Park in New Brighton.  We will leave Highview at approximately 11:00 AM, returning at 2:30 PM.  Students will be walking to Driftwood Park (2705th St NW) accompanied by Highview Staff.  While at the park, students will be eating lunch.  Students may order a box lunch from school, bring a lunch from home, or order a Jersey Mike’s lunch (assorted subs, freeze pop, chips and water) for $7.00.

    Our goal is for all Highview 8th graders to participate in this celebration.  Completed permission slips were sent home with students several weeks ago.  Completed permission slips must be returned to your student’s first period teacher by Wednesday, May 30th.  More copies are available in the school office or can be found here.

     

    If you have any questions or concerns, please contact your student’s dean or the principal.
