8th Grade Block Party Celebration, Volunteers Needed!

We have an epic celebration planned this year for our 8th graders beginning with an outdoor picnic lunch on the grass near the bus circle, followed by a block party on the HMS field.

The celebration will take place on Wednesday, May 31st. Students will attend class periods 1-4, followed by the picnic lunch from 12:30-1pm and the block party from 1-3pm.

Picnic: Students will have their choice of a Jimmy John’s sub sandwiches, chips, bottled water, and Andy’s frozen vanilla custard. Ingredients have been sent to parents in a separate email. Make sure your child has placed his/her order on a google form. The deadline is May 19th. All lunch volunteer slots (12:15-1:15pm) have been filled, THANK YOU!

Block Party: We have TONS of fun activities including a 75′ inflatable obstacle course competition, a basketball bungee run, water balloon dunk tank, cash cube prize attraction, caricaturists, a photo booth, lawn games, snacks, scavenger hunt for great prizes-including Hinsdale Central swag (alternatives for those attending other high schools)! We’re still looking for volunteers to help with the block party (12:30-3pm). Block party volunteer sign ups can be found here SUG.

Please join us and be a part of your child’s final memories at HMS!
