Potter Cup 2016!
*UPDATE* POTTER CUP INFORMATION (Download)
Students who have purchased a package for Potter Cup will receive their Potter Cup T-shirt next week (Jan 26 or 27). Tickets and wristbands will be distributed on Fri, Jan 29 just before departure for the High School. Students will be strongly encouraged to leave backpacks in their lockers over the weekend. Teachers will try to limit assignments for the weekend. HMS staff will escort students to the High School at about 1:45 pm and secure coats. Once students have arrived at the High School, they are expected to stay until the event is over at about 7:30 pm.
If a child needs to leave before the event is over, a parent must come into the High School and sign out their child. Please have your child bring a note that day (or earlier). All early dismissals must be completed by 6:30 pm. Early pick up is at the HS main entrance.
Students who are not attending will remain at HMS until normal dismissal at 2:35.
If a HMS student wishes to attend, they will be admitted to the High School AFTER 4 pm. Students must be signed in by a parent or guardian, and a parent cannot sign in more than 3 children. Entry to Potter Cup is at the HS curve. A fee of $10 per student will be required. This will cover admittance and the activity wristband, which enables the student to take part in all of the different activities set up through out the high school. Food tickets will be available in the cafeteria areas (50¢ per ticket).
Having been awarded PIAA Sportsmanship Award the past several years demonstrates how well behaved our students are at all sporting events, and the same is expected for Potter Cup. Students who experience behavioral issues will be removed from the event and a parent will be called to take their child home. Further discipline could result from their grade level principal.
Students are responsible for their own cell phones, cameras & other electronic equipment. HMS and PHMS staff will NOT baby sit electronic devices.
