Important 8th Grade Farewell Information

8th grade students, parents, and guardians:

The 2022 8th grade Farewell: Family Block Party will be held on Wednesday, June 15th from 6:00-8:00pm, at Wilde Lake Middle School. Ten years ago, we started a tradition of having a PTSA sponsored reception after the Farewell activity. We will continue that tradition this year. We are asking that 8th grade families bring in either a dessert, snack, or water to the block party.

If your last name begins with:

A-G: Bring a sweet dessert to share (cookies, cake, brownies, fruit, etc…) We ask that if you are bringing in homemade items, that you label it with the ingredients (due to food allergies). Individually wrapped items are preferred.

H-M: Bring a salty/savory snack to share (pretzels, chips, crackers, popcorn, etc…) Individually wrapped items are preferred.

N-Z: Bring a case of water (24 individual bottles; 16 or 8 ounce bottles)

Please bring your item to the block party on June 15th.  Thank you and if you have any questions, please email Ms. Drakes:

6th and 7th Grade Family Volunteers Needed:

On Wednesday June 15th from 6-8 PM the WLMS Staff will be throwing a Block Party to celebrate our 8th Graders and wish them well as they begin their high school journey in the fall. It is a WLMS tradition that parents who do not currently have 8th Graders volunteer at the event to help set-up, serve food, and clean-up. This allows the families of the 8th Graders to relax and enjoy the celebration. Please consider coming out to help make the event a success for our 8th Graders and their families! Any help is appreciated, please see the Sign-up Genius link:
