MS 839 administration and the 8th Grade Committee are hard at work to ensure a fun, celebratory, and memorable end-of-year for all of our 8th graders!

Senior dues of $125 per student will help the PTA cover costs for an exciting lineup of memorable activities and souvenirs to close out their year. 8th grade activities will soon commence. Please pay your 8th grade student’s dues as soon as possible. Thank you! Note that all eighth graders will be able to participate in ALL of these activities regardless of payment.

Eighth grade students can look forward to: 

  • Graduation Ceremony — Tuesday June 25th
  • Class Trip — Monday June 24th
  • 8th Grade Dance — Tuesday June 18th
  • Yearbook
  • Passages Pins
  • Class T-shirt
  • Graduation Rehearsal Breakfast

In line with MS 839’s values, equity is top-of-mind as 8th grade activities and dues have been determined. These dues do not cover all expenses associated with these activities; in fact, they only cover about half. However, the 8th Grade Committee and the PTA work together to keep dues per student at a minimum in order to keep participation as high as possible.

Payment and Donation Options:

Payment options include: 

  • One Time: Make a one-time payment of $125 for your MS 839 8th grader.
