7th Grade Annual Infomercial Oscars - Please Help Make It Special

?Dear Parents/Guardians of 7th grade Graders,

Hopefully your student has filled you in on the infomercials we’ve been working hard on in 7th grade! As a culmination to this unit, we will be hosting the Fourth Annual Infomercial Oscars on Friday, June 13th. We will be inviting students to dress up that morning, particularly students who are nominated for an award. Parents are welcome to sneak in and take photos and/or watch part of the ceremony!

To make the morning a little more special, we would like to provide a continental breakfast for them that morning. We would appreciate parent donations of bagels, muffins, cut up fruit, water and juice along with paper products and utensils to serve to the students that morning! Below is a sign up form of different items that we need for the breakfast that morning. As responses come in, we will remove items that we have enough donations of so that we do not have more than what we need.  If you are able to help in this capacity, please drop off the items on Thursday, June 12th by 3:45 that afternoon. There is also an option on the form to volunteer the morning of the Oscars to help set up the breakfast. Please contact Nicole Pabst at (262) 376-5829 or Erin Brauer at (262) 376-5856 if you have any questions. Thank you in advance for your support!


 Best, 7th grade team

It is customary to have a reception and a dance following the 8 Grade Promotion Ceremony.  It is also customary to have 6th and 7th grade parents help out with the 8th Grade Promotion Reception and Dance.  That way, when your son or daughter is in 8th grade, you as parents do not have to worry about set up, clean up, etc... and chaperoning the dance.

Please see the attached form to signup and have your student bring it to the school office.  Thank you!
