Senior Parent Information

Dear Senior Parents - 


Congratulations on  your child's upcoming Senior year.  This is a very important year for you and your child and we are excited to be a part of it.  As part of an effort to improve communications between the school and parents, we have formed a committee of senior parents who have volunteered to chair upcoming Senior/Class related events.  These parents will serve as your primary contact should you have any questions or just want to get involved.  


Attached are all of the flyers and registration forms for upcoming events.  Please take a moment to review and complete the attached forms.  Our hope is that completed forms can be returned at the Senior Class Meeting which will take place on Thursday, September 7th from 6:00-7:00 p.m.  (This is before the start of Back-To-School Night.)  On that evening, we will also have information available regarding registering your child for their Graduation Cap and Gown.  Each family will also receive a hard copy of the attached information that evening.  The earlier forms are returned the more time we have to guarantee that we can accommodate all students interested in attending.  


We would like to make you aware that there is a discounted price for Grad Night tickets should you purchase your child's ticket prior to September 29, 2017.  Prices will increase after that date.  Places are limited for this event, so guarantee your child's spot by turning your forms in at Back To School Night.


Throughout the year important information regarding Senior Activities will be posted on our school website as well as our NEW Activities website:  http://hillsdaleactivities.weebly.com    On the weebly website under the SENIOR CLASS TAB you will find a list of all seniors and what they have registered for.  This will be updated every Friday.  This should make it easier for you to track if your child is paid or not.

Senior year comes with many activities and events.  Please see the list below for tentative costs so that you can plan accordingly. Costs below are based on the original costs of events and do not typically consider 'late costs'. For possible discounts on some of these expense go to www.smuhsd.org website to determine if you qualify for free/reduced lunch.
