 The 8th Grade Graduation Party was a success! We would like to thank the MANY Hauser 8th grade parents who volunteered their time, lent us their creativity, and generously donated to make the party great.

Special thanks go to:

-The Decorations Committee for turning the township auditorium into a fabulous tropical paradise! Shout out to Riverside Fire Chief Matt Buckley for allowing (and monitoring) the lit outdoor tiki lights that greeted the kids as they made their way inside.

-The Entertainment Committee for lining up a DJ the kids loved!

-The Food Committee for wowing the kids with their “beach balls,” “coconuts,” fruit skewers and sherbet cups to cool them off.

-The Photos Committee for creating clever school photo boards that kept the kids reminiscing all night long.

-The 7th Grade parents whose help allowed 8th grade parents to spend time with their grads!

-The Check-in and Check-out committees for keeping the lines peacefully moving.

-The Quiet Room committee for creating a secondary space for the kids to enjoy.

-The 25+ chaperones who kept 200+ excited boys and girls safe and sound all night!

Thank you all! Have a great summer!

IMPORTANT Hauser 8th Grade Graduation Party Info: PLEASE READ!

Posted May 29, 2018 | Category: News

This information was originally posted on . Please note that the article refers to events from a previous school year.

We have planned a FABULOUS Luau Party to celebrate our 8th Grade Graduates Thursday night from 8:30-11:30pm!

Here’s some basic info: 
  • Buses will be located outside RBHS immediately after the ceremony to take the kids to Village Hall. Bus transport is encouraged, but not required.
  • Please make sure your student has submitted a permission slip to attend the event. Students won’t be able to join the party without a permission slip. The slips will be used at check-in, check out and in case of emergency.
  • The kids will enjoy a super fun night of Hawaiian-themed snacks, their favorite tunes spun by DJ HYPE, dancing and more! A quiet room with board games and a movie also will be available for kids who would rather chill out.

There will be many parent chaperones around to ensure your child’s safety during the event.

CHECK-OUT PROCEDURE 

For safety reasons, no child will be allowed to leave the party unless accompanied by a parent or person authorized as noted on their permission slip.

  • You must be present to sign out your child.
  • Check-out volunteers will not be able to send your child out to your car. As tempting as it might be, please don’t text your 8th Grader and ask them to meet you outside.
  • Chaperones will be stationed at front and back doors to ensure proper procedure is followed.

Your cooperation with this procedure will be greatly appreciated by check-out volunteers. They will have a very long night ahead of them if they have to track down kids who weren’t properly signed out to ensure they are safely at home.
