2014-15 School Supply List

We’ve Heard You…

Stay tuned for information about a new, easy PTO fundraiser with a super fun component that the students are going to love! We’ve heard that your families are tired of selling magazines, and they won’t need to do that this year. We will still need your support raising money, though, in order for the PTO to provide for the school, teachers and students. Watch for future eBlasts and grab a flyer at the Back-to-School Day to learn more about this year’s entertaining fundraiser!

2014 Washington, D.C. 8th Grade Trip – Required District Forms

logo_transAlthough the Washington, D.C. Trip is in November, there are a couple more key details for parents and students to complete so that your child will be all set for the Washington, D.C. trip on November 5 – 8, 2014.

Before Back-To-School Days on August 19, 2014, download and complete all District 181 Washington, D.C. trip forms. There are four forms required by the district: District Form A, Regulations on Conduct Form B, Emergency Medical Release Form C, and the Medication Form Pages 1 & 2. All of the required forms are available for download on the District 181 Hinsdale Middle School website within the Parent Resources section of the site.

http://www.d181.org/hms/parents/index.aspx

Once you go to the Parent Resources link, scroll to the bottom of the page and look to the far right-hand side. You will find a section of the site labeled: Washington, D.C. 2014-2015. The cover sheet explains how to complete Forms A, B & C. Both pages of the Medication Form and specific directions for completion are provided here as well.

All completed forms can be returned to Jane Fetty at Hinsdale Middle School on Back-To-School Days, August 19, 2014.

If you are unable to attend, please deliver the forms to Hinsdale Middle School by Friday, August 29, 2014.

If you have questions regarding the Washington, D.C. forms, please email Jane Fetty at jfetty@d181.org
