-A A +A

The Los Alamos County Parks, Recreation and Open Space Division announces the annual Hawk to Hilltopper Event. The event will be from noon to 3 p.m. May 30 at Urban Park. The event is a celebration for 8th grade students transitioning to high school.
There will be 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 usually ends around 3 p.m., so parents can pick 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 Admin Offices at the Aquatic Center, or online at www.losalamosnm.us/rec. Turn in permission forms 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. the day of the event and have the cans marked with the participant’s name.
The middle school is still looking for community partners to help facilitate this alcohol and drug free celebration.
