Attention 8th grade string parents:
Tomorrow, your children perform for the last time as middle school string students. This often is their favorite performance of the year as they have the opportunity to perform for all third and fourth grade students. Here are the specifics regarding our morning.
• Arrive at Hilltop by 8:15 am. We will take attendance and call the middle school.
• Please wear your Wyoming strings polo shirt on top.
• There are no cellos or basses at Hilltop. Students will need to use their instruments. Cellos and basses can be left at Hilltop for later pick up.

We will perform twice (once for the students of Hilltop and again for the students of Elm and Vermont).

• After the performance, we will walk down Reilly to the middle school.

It’s been a great year. They’ve chosen some great songs to perform for the elementary students.

Please write or call with any questions.

We love our staff at WMS! To show our appreciation last year, we raised enough money to cater a big taco lunch “fiesta.” Something as simple as this made a huge impact. The staff was incredibly appreciative and are still talking about it! Many of them have asked if it’s happening again :). Let’s do it! Feel no obligation, but if you are looking for a way to love on our staff, we would love to raise enough money to surprise them with another fiesta.
If you would like to pitch in, send cash or a check (made out to Wyoming Middle School) in an envelope marked FIESTA to the WMS office by May 17th. You can also contribute to a PayPal Account created just for this:https://paypal.me/pools/c/84bcfuCAUc

And if you are available we would love to have your help running our May Fete booth or helping make our May Fete recycling program work. Please volunteer here: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/10c094ba4ac28a20-mayfete

7TH GRADE PARENTS – THIS IS DUE TOMORROW (5/11)

Dear WMS 7th Grade Parents,
Traditionally, 7th graders have stayed on site for their last day of school, while the 5th graders go skating, the 6th graders have a pool party, and the 8th graders go to Kings Island….
But this year we have decided to try something new! The class will be taking buses to Rockin’ Jump Trampoline Park, located at 8350 Colerain Avenue, 45239. Students will spend 2 hours there using the trampoline & rock climbing facilities – see photos below. Here is a link to detailed attractions at Rockin’ Jump: https://cincinnati.rockinjump.com/trampoline-park-attractions/
There is also a snack bar, video games, and an area for just hanging out. Lunch of pizza and drinks will be provided with the cost of admission. Lunch will be 2 slices of pizza and a drink. If your student will want more food than that from the snack bar or would choose to play video games while at Rockin’ Jump, they should bring some additional spending money.
The cost for students is $20 each. Please submit your payment to Mr. Kassner (check made out to Wyoming Board of Education or cash in an envelope with your student’s name) or the school office by
May 11. Each student must have a signed waiver to attend. Please do this electronically by May 11 at: https://rockinjumpcincinnati.pfestore.com/waiver/
Each student will also need a signed permission slip in order to ride the bus. It is attached to this message and should be returned to school with payment.
Here is the timeline for the day:
8:00-10:00 Breakfast of donuts & juice at school, teacher activities, movies
10:00-10:30 Board buses for Rockin’ Jump
11:00-1:00 WMS designated time at Rockin’ Jump
1:00-1:30 Back at WMS for cookies/recess
2:10 Early dismissal for last day
We hope the students will enjoy this activity and spending fun time together before summer break! Please contact the WMS office with questions.
Sincerely,
WMS 7th grade teachers & Cindi Nugent 7th grade PAC rep

Wyoming Youth Services 8th Grade Dance on May 4th
In the past, this dance has been sponsored by the Wyoming Police Association. Starting in 2018, it will be hosted by Wyoming Youth Services. Wyoming Youth Services is a non-profit social service agency that represents a unique partnership between the City of Wyoming, Wyoming City Schools and dedicated members of our community. Wyoming Youth Services organizes, facilitates and leads this partnership to strengthen the community, its youth and their families. The 8th Grade Dance chaperones are Wyoming Youth Services board members (members of the community and representatives of the city and schools) and off-duty police officers who volunteer their time to provide your child the joy of a class party.
As in the past, this dance is not a formal or prom; however, it is a nice affair. Proper dress is required; a fair description would be dressy casual. Dresses or a shirt with a nice skirt or pants is recommended. Suits are optional; khakis with shirt and tie are fine. Because it is hot, most jackets are taken off quickly, if worn at all. Dates are not encouraged. The evening is intended to be a class celebration. Students seem to find the evening more enjoyable if they are free to visit with everyone and are not carrying the uncertainty of what’s required of a “date.” Wyoming Youth Services is hoping to make this night as carefree and delightful as possible. Soft drinks and water will be served along with light snacks. A DJ will provide the music.
The date for this year’s dance is 8-10 p.m. Friday, May 4th, at the Wyoming Civic Center. Please encourage your child to come on time and take advantage of an evening that has their accomplishments and joy at its center. Please be aware that if your child leaves the Civic Center they will not be allowed to return to the dance. Please also be aware that if your child engages in inappropriate behavior or dancing they will be asked to leave the dance. This information and an invitation have been sent to all 8th grade homes in the US mail.
If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact Wyoming Youth Services Executive Director Leslie Moorhead at 513-821-2428 or lmoorhead@wyomingyouthservices.com.

Dear WMS 7th Grade Parents,

Traditionally, 7th graders have stayed on site for their last day of school, while the 5th graders go skating, the 6th graders have a pool party, and the 8th graders go to Kings Island….

But this year we have decided to try something new! The class will be taking buses to Rockin’ Jump Trampoline Park, located at 8350 Colerain Avenue, 45239. Students will spend 2 hours there using the trampoline & rock climbing facilities – see photos below. Here is a link to detailed attractions at Rockin’ Jump: https://cincinnati.rockinjump.com/trampoline-park-attractions/

There is also a snack bar, video games, and an area for just hanging out. Lunch of pizza and drinks will be provided with the cost of admission. Lunch will be 2 slices of pizza and a drink. If your student will want more food than that from the snack bar or would choose to play video games while at Rockin’ Jump, they should bring some additional spending money.

The cost for students is $20 each. Please submit your payment to Mr. Kassner (check made out to Wyoming Board of Education or cash in an envelope with your student’s name) or the school office by May 11. Each student must have a signed waiver to attend. Please do this electronically by May 11 at: https://rockinjumpcincinnati.pfestore.com/waiver/

Each student will also need a signed permission slip in order to ride the bus. It is attached to this message and should be returned to school with payment.

Here is the timeline for the day:
8:00-10:00 Breakfast of donuts & juice at school, teacher activities, movies
10:00-10:30 Board buses for Rockin’ Jump
11:00-1:00 WMS designated time at Rockin’ Jump
1:00-1:30 Back at WMS for cookies/recess
2:10 Early dismissal for last day

We hope the students will enjoy this activity and spending fun time together before summer break! Please contact the WMS office with questions.

Sincerely,
WMS 7th grade teachers & Cindi Nugent 7th grade PAC rep
