The Los Alamos County Parks, Recreation & Open Space Division announces that the Hawk to Hilltopper event is set for noon to 3 p.m., May 30 at Urban Park.
This annual event is a celebration for 8th grade students transitioning to high school. Students are treated to a barbeque lunch, inflatable toys and the famous shaving cream war. The event will end with the Los Alamos Fire Department hosing off the students after the shaving cream war.
The event typically ends around 3 p.m. with parents picking up students at the park.
A parent permission form is required to participate in the event and is available at the Los Alamos Middle School administration office, the PROS administration offices at the Aquatic Center, or online at www.losalamosnm.us/rec. Permission forms must be turned in to the Aquatic Center or to the Los Alamos Middle School office by May 29.
Shaving cream is not to be taken to school; it can be dropped off at the Aquatic Center any time before 10 a.m. that Friday May 30th. Please make sure to mark with the participant’s name.
