Upcoming Events and Reminders

May 9, 2018

Good Afternoon Hixson Families,
It’s hard to believe there are only 10.5 more days left of school!  As we approach the end of the school year, there will be a handful of communication you will receive besides this upcoming events and reminders.  Communication can also be found on our Facebook page and all the bi-monthly updates are on our website as well.  I know the end of the year is a crazy time for all of our school buildings with a number of events going on.  Please don’t hesitate to reach out if you have any questions or need more information.

JET’s Pizza Night
Our very LAST pizza night with JET’s is Thursday, May 10th.  We have appreciated your support this year and hope you will come out for one last pizza dinner to support our school.  20% of sales on Thursday come back to our school.  Just let them know you are supporting Hixson and they will credit it to us.

8th Grade Dance
The student council and teacher leaders have cancelled the dance due to low interest.  In place of the dance, on the last day of school, 8th graders will have a farewell dance party on the blacktop and lunch.  Thank you to the parents who volunteered.  We appreciate your support.

Six Flags
On Wednesday, May 23rd, 7th and 8th graders will be attending the end of the year Six Flags field trip.  The last day to turn in permission slip forms and money is Friday, May 18th.   The deadline is important to honor because this determines how many busses to order for kids. 

Immunization for incoming 8th graders for the 2018-2019 School Year
In compliance with our school board policy and state law, all students will need to show proper documentation of immunization compliance to attend the 1st day of school next year, August 14th.  All students entering 8th grade will need documentation that a meningococcal immunization AND Tdap booster immunization have been obtained.  Proof of compliance may also include documentation from St. Louis County Department of Health and Senior Services stating that your child has a medical exemptionis in progress of attaining the required immunizations, or has a religious exemption.  Please refer to the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services website or a physician for additional details regarding the meningococcal vaccine and all other immunization requirements.  We are sharing this now in the hopes that no student will have to be excluded from school for not having this required documentation.  

In order to begin preparing for the next school year, we wanted to begin sharing this information now

Last Day of School
On the last day of school, we will be providing a light lunch for students that will include hotdogs and chips.  The Kona Ice Truck will also be on campus for students to purchase snow cones.  If you would like donate water, please drop it off in the main office.  Thank you in advance!

Thank You
Thank you for all of your support and a wonderful teacher appreciation week.  The Hixson teachers appreciate all of your support and wish you an awesome summer!

Have a great weekend reconnecting with each other.
With gratitude,
