Monday Memo: Special Events!

On May 11, Melissa will be announcing a surprise science project. This project will cost each student $2.00 to participate. We will send more info home on May 11. The culminating activity for this project will occur on May 23.

May 13 is Hixson Track Day. It is a half day here at Hixson and we will be down at the track all morning. Kids should come to school dressed for an outdoor event. They may bring water bottles and sunscreen. A couple of our students have designed Harmony Team Track Day t-shirts. They are still available but orders close tomorrow. Here is the link to the order form if you would like to order one. 

Harmony Student TED Talks will be May 18 from 8:45-11:15 in the Hixson auditorium. We will be putting a list together of students' times so that you will know when your kiddos are speaking. We are really looking forward to seeing this exhibition of learning.

On Friday, May 20, the technology department is collecting all of our Chromebooks. Kids should bring their laptops and power cords to school that day. 

On Wednesday, May 25, we will be going on a field trip to the St. Louis Art Museum. We will be led on a tour of specific exhibits. We will return to school in time for lunch. We will be getting pizza for lunch. The permission slip for this trip is available here.

On Thursday, May 26, we will be going on our end-of-year field trip to Sports Fusion in Chesterfield. The cost of the trip is $21.00. All school fines (computers, library books, etc) must be paid before students will be allowed to go on this trip. The field trip permission slip is here

Since the last week of school is dedicated to field trips and special events, we will stop assigning work on Friday, May 20. Kids can still hand in old work until Wednesday, May 25. The second semester grade goes on the kids' permanent records.  Please check grades and encourage kids to get their missing work turned in.
