Talking HF Tigers 6/14

While the High School has wrapped up classes and begun finals and Regents testing, the elementary buildings are jam packed with events and activities. I would like to remind everyone that there will be no classes or tests on Wednesday, June 19 in observance of the Juneteenth holiday. Elementary families should also take note that the last day of classes will be Tuesday, June 25. 

Take the Field 

One of the most exciting end of year events at the elementary schools is Field Day. Next week the Intermediate School will kick off the first Field Day on Monday, June 17. The next day the Primary School will take their turn with our final Field Day taking place on Friday, June 21 at the Kindergarten Center. We look forward to full fields of students, staff, parents and grandparents as our Physical Education teachers provide a variety of activities. A special thank you to our PTSA for providing field day shirts for all students. Make sure to send in an extra water bottle next week!

Moving on Up

Next week will also see a pair of Moving Up Ceremonies that will take place in the High School Auditorium. On Monday, June 17 at 6:00 p.m. the eighth graders will celebrate the completion of their middle school careers and be welcomed to the High School as incoming ninth graders. The following day we will see our fifth graders tie a bow on their elementary journey with their Moving Up Ceremony on Tuesday, June 18 at 7:00 p.m.  

  • 8th Grade Moving Up Ceremony Monday, June 17, 6:00 p.m. at the High School Auditorium 
  • 5th Grade Moving Up Ceremony Tuesday, June 18, 7:00 p.m. at the High School Auditorium
