8th Grade Activities

Attention 8th Grade Parents:
There will be a formal letter coming home with your student next week, but we wanted to let you know of some exciting new traditions we are starting:
#1. The PTSA has purchased “Class of 2018” t-shirts for your 8th grader (artwork created by our very own Rista White). We are asking for a $5 voluntary donation to help offset the cost of the shirts. Please note that your 8th grader will get one regardless, but if you would like to contribute please click on the link below.

$5 Voluntary Donation for Class of 2018 T-shirt

#2. We would like to start an annual tradition of an 8th grade class gift to Hoover. Our dream is to purchase a new display case for the main building’s entry. We estimate this cost to be $2000. If our 8th grade families were to donate $10-20 per family, we would have more than enough. Please note that if we are unable to raise $2000, we will use whatever money is raised to purchase a much needed item on behalf of the Class of 2018. If you would like to donate toward the Class of 2018 gift, please click on the link below.
