8th Grade Block Party- We Still Need Volunteers!

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’re still looking for volunteers to help with the block party (12:30-3pm). Block party volunteer sign ups can be found here SUG.

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)!

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