News and Updates
Welcome to 8th Grade!

We can't believe we're already in our last year at Sutton!  Your 8th grade coordinators for the year are Megan Watkins and Kara Williamson.  We'll be sending out newsletters throughout the year to keep you updated on all things 8th grade.  This first one has a lot of information, so please take the time to read it!  

8th Grade Parent Social

Please join us on Wednesday, August 30, at Scofflaw's MacArthur Brewery from 7 to 9 pm for some drinks, good conversation and Class of 2028 swag.  

Drinks are on us for the first 50 who attend!  

We'll be there to answer any questions you may have and will have QR codes on hand for all of your action items discussed below!  (No students, please.)

In addition to these newsletters, we'll send out information via the Sutton Source and email blasts, and we will also post information on our Class of 2028 Facebook page and PTA webpage (also linked at the bottom of this newsletter).

Please take a moment to create an account on the Sutton PTA website in order to receive the Sutton Source and all 8th grade emails and newsletters.

Calendar of Events and Dues

This year is going to be jam-packed with lots of fun events to celebrate our 8th graders and make sure they have their best year ever at Sutton!  View/subscribe to our calendar here or by clicking the calendar icon below.  

To fund these events last year, both the PTA and Sutton collected separate payments throughout the year for various activities.  The feedback received from parents was that this ended up being quite confusing.  So, this year, we are collecting dues that will cover most of the PTA and Sutton events for 8th graders (with some exceptions as you'll see below).  We cannot fund these events without your dues!

What are dues funding?

- Class of 2028 t-shirts

- 8th Grade Dance (event costs)

- Movie Day*

- Picnic*

- Party at Main Event*

- Fun Day (post-Field Day celebration for 8th graders only)

- 8th Grade Promotion

* Your student will not be able to participate in the asterisked activities if dues are not paid.

What is NOT included?

- Yearbook ads

- Out of town field trips

- Entry ticket to 8th Grade Dance

- Class of 2028 yard signs

Dues are $150 per student and are due by September 30.  You can pay this fee over a 6-month period and you also have the option to donate extra to help cover dues for students who may be in need.  Click here or the payment icon at the bottom of the newsletter to make your payment today!

As you can see, we're going to have a lot going on this year and are going to need all the help we can get!  Please email us if you can help!
