With Governor Abbott's declaration that all Texas schools will suspend normal operations until May 4, the 8th grade exit event is placed in a TENTATIVE status. More information forthcoming as the picture becomes clearer.
The end of the year (and the end of the middle school journey) is fast approaching, and we are excited to celebrate with our 8th grade students. Today your child was made aware of the guidelines that must be met in order to attend the 8th Grade Exit Celebration at Main Event in Stafford on Friday, May 15, 2020. Students must return the acknowledgement slip below, the release form on the back of this letter, and either $20 (no t-shirt) or $25 (including t-shirt) by May 5, 2020 in order to attend. The fees will cover soda, 2 slices of pizza, a $10 video game card, unlimited bowling, shuffleboard, billiards, Lazer Tag, and a Gravity Ropes Course (unlimited from 2:30 P.M. to 5:00 P.M.). If your child would like to participate in anything not covered above, he/she will need to bring additional money to cover those costs. We will leave SLMS around 2:00 P.M. and return to campus by 5:30 P.M. Your child must be picked up by a parent or guardian at Sugar Land MS by 5:30 PM.Students will not be dismissed from Main Event.
