Yard Sign Information

8th Grade Graduation Yard Signs!

We are very excited to announce that a group of WHMS parents have made available 8th grade graduation yard signs for pre-order.  This is a great way to celebrate your 8th grader as they end their time at Windy Hill Middle School, and embark on a new era in high school.

***PLEASE NOTE*** This is not organized by the school.  This is being organized by a group of parent volunteers.  All payments will be paid to the parents directly.  Also, distribution will take place in person off campus.  The parent group will send out pick up details as soon as they receive the signs.

COST: $15 - If you need more than one sign, submit payment for additional signs

Last day to order: 4/15/2024

For more information and to receive payment details, please email
