8th Grade EOY Celebration!

More than half of the class is attending the Eight Grade End-of-Year Celebration!! But we’d like to get everyone there.  So Eighth Grade End-of-Year Celebration ticket sales have been extended to THIS FRIDAY, June 5th. This is the final extension. It is a catered dinner requiring a final count. Tickets will NOT be sold at the door. To register, fill out this form and send in $25, cash or a check made payable to the CFPMS PTO.  It can be turned into the front office. We need help to make this night special for this great class. Parents, please use this link to volunteer to help or donate supplies. The decorating committee is looking for LOTS of white or blue Christmas tree lights and fake trees. They can be dropped off at the Patton security desk. If you are still not sure what the 8th Grade End-of-Year Celebration is, there will be a sit down dinner, a DJ, photo booth, photographer, candy bar, water ice and more. This event is exclusively for Patton eight graders. It’s on THURSDAY, JUNE 11th.  Drop-off at Patton’s Gym from 5:15-5:30.  The class will walk over to the High School at 5:45.  We’re asking parent and friends to stay and line the path from the Middle School to the High School to help welcome UHS’s Class of 2019.  Pick-up is 9:30 at the UHS Cafeteria. Please let either Patte Heldt ( or me know if you have any questions about the event.

Thanks to all the advisories for the OUTSTANDING raffle baskets and to Mr. Mawson for organizing. Special thanks to the Patton teachers who stepped up to take a turn in the Dunk Tank along with Mr. Hoffman, Dr. Sanville AND elementary school principals, Mr. Beaver, Mr. Dissinger and Mr. Dutkiewicz.
