News and Updates
8th Grade Parent Social Recap

Thanks so much to everyone who came out at the end of August to learn more about all of the exciting things we have in store for our 8th graders this year!  It was great seeing all of your faces.  For those of you who missed it, please click here to view the flyer we circulated at the event.

We also want to say a HUGE thank you to Alyn Petersen for co-hosting the event with the 8th Grade Committee, and to Matt and Amanda Shirah and the wonderful folks at Scofflaw Brewing Company for donating items for the gift bags and providing such a wonderful space (and delicious drinks) for the event. 

Pay Your Dues by September 30!

This year is going to be jam-packed with lots of fun events (see below) to celebrate our 8th graders and make sure they have their best year ever at Sutton!    

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!
