Brought to you by 8th grade Activities Committee of the PTO
Dear 8thGrade Parents/Guardians, It’s hard to believe that our 8th graders will soon be off to high school! As you may be aware, the end of middle school is celebrated with lots of fun activities that cap off the students’ time at WMS. Given the circumstances of this atypical school year, some of these end of year activities will need to be reimagined. Please know we are still making every effort to create special experiences for our 8th graders to commemorate this milestone time. You will hear more specifics in the weeks that follow on these activities from the parent volunteers heading up the various events, but here is an outline version of what is to come: Ø Community Service Day – May (date TBD) Ø Class spirit t-shirt Ø Graduation/departure day celebration and 8th grade gift bags Ø 8th Grade class gift to WMS
8th GRADE ACTIVITIES FEES: We have bundled all the costs together and are suggesting a family donation of $50 for each 8th grade family which covers all of the above. You can donate either by check written out to the WMS PTO, mailed to the address below with your students name and “8th Grade Activities" written in the memo section, or you can pay via PayPal at 8th Grade Fee Payment; please note “8th Grade Activities” in the special instructions section. Mailing Address for check: Wellesley Middle School PTO, PO Box 81426, Wellesley Hills, MA 02481
YEARBOOK: Let’s show our support to the Yearbook Club. 2020/2021 was a tricky year to gather stories and photos in the usual in person way. We can help by sharing stories and photos of our students, capturing both their in person and remote learning experiences this school year. They have provided a link to submit your photos. Click here for step by step uploading instructions. The link to upload photos is commpe.pictavo.com. The deadline for all submissions is (tentatively) March 1, 2021. If you prefer to send your stories and digital photos to the yearbook team, they can upload them for you. Please email questions or submissions to: Kris Lotoski email@example.com or Andrea Brenner firstname.lastname@example.org.
Yearbooks are now officially on sale and will be open through April 27, 2021! For easy online ordering go to Coffeepond.com and select “Yearbook Program", then "Yearbook Orders”. The password is raiders. Yearbooks are $33. (Note: Yearbook orders are separate from the 8th grade activities fees).
PARENT VOLUNTEERS: We are still looking for parent volunteers to help with aspects of the 8th grade activities. If you are interested in lending a hand, please reach out to Megan Dyer at email@example.com, or Jenny Coleman at firstname.lastname@example.org. Your participation is much appreciated!
