Good afternoon parents,
Our strings concerts are fast approaching. Let’s talk concert logistics:
• Please drop off all instruments by Friday morning before school. This is a change from what was previously stated. You may also drop off instruments between 3:30 and 4:30 on Thursday afternoon if that is more convenient.
• Make sure musicians have their performance attire (blue polo, dress black pant and a dress shoe).
• 7th and 8th grade students will not rehearse at the high school on Thursday. We will have a full rehearsal at the middle school during their regular class time.
• Cello and bass players-since we don’t see your instruments, make sure that everything is in working order.
3:00-6th and 7th grade orchestras perform
5:00-5th and 8th grade orchestras perform
7:30-high school orchestras perform
Thanks again for your open-mindedness and support in trying something new. We appreciate your feedback. Any questions, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
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 email@example.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.
