With much excitement among the kids, the Spring Carnivale and 3v3 Basketball Hoopla at Devotion School is on for Monday, June 17. Please know that we will maintain the list of Hoopla teams registered and let us know if any team members change due to this move. Also, kids can sign up until 15 minutes before start time.
Please note that start times have shifted a bit to accommodate our 8th graders who will be leaving a bit early for an evening event. The Carnivale will now run from 2:30-7:30. The 7th/8th graders will now start the Hoopla at 3:15 and should be there to check by 3. The 3rd/4th graders will start around 4 and the 5th/6th graders will start around 4:45.
Thanks and we look forward to seeing everyone.

When it comes to kids and risky behavior, summer can be the most challenging time of the year, often triggered by boredom from too much unstructured free time. Kids can feel a little at loose ends without the structure of the school day, and research shows that young people with unsupervised hours are three times more likely to engage in risky behavior, like experimentation with tobacco, marijuana, alcohol, sexual activity, etc.
Middle School parents - It's not too late! The last 2 weeks of school are a great time to do community service at the Yawkey House, to give our kids a sense of appreciation just before they head off to participate in camps and programs of their own. Please contact Lisa Golden to schedule an hour of baking cookies or brownies with a few of your friends for the guests at Yawkey House, where out of town patients at Children's Hospital and their parents stay when they are in treatment.
