Each year, Bloomfield Hills Schools partners with a charity or non-profit organization to help make a difference in our community. This year's Make a Difference Day will be on Saturday, October 25 and will support The Greening of Detroit. We will be raising money throughout the week of October 20 – 24, and on Saturday, October 25, we invite all students and families to join us planting trees in Detroit.
Important Information for 8th Graders - We have 30 spots available for eighth graders interested in riding a district bus to the event (parent chaperones provided). The cost to ride the bus is $5.00. Interested students must turn in a district permission slip along with their $5.00 by Friday, October 17. Eighth-grade teachers will be sharing information about the service opportunity beginning next week on Monday, October 13. Bus pick up for East Hills Middle School will be at 7:30 AM at the top drop off loop. The bus will return to EHMS at approximately 1:00 PM. Spots are limited and you will be notified if you will be participating . . . permission slips will be required for student attendance!
Note: If we don't have enough 8th graders to fill our 30 spots on the bus, we will open up the bus spots to 7th graders and then 6th graders.
Important Information for 5th - 7th Graders – Fifth, sixth, and seventh graders must find their own transportation to and from the event and they must bring a supervising adult. Students should arrive by 9:00 AM at McKenny Elementary in Detroit (see address below). The event will end at noon.
