Graduation Date Change

As we previously shared, Graduation for the class of 2021 will be held at American Family Field. This week, due to continuing safety protocols from Major League Baseball, American Family Field representatives informed us that our graduation ceremony has to be moved a day earlier to Saturday, June 19. Our time will remain at 5:00 PM. The specific safety protocol relates to the fact that their broadcasters were told they could not travel with the team and therefore, will be using the stadium as their broadcast point for the afternoon away game.

As we planned our graduation at American Family Field, we knew we would need to be somewhat flexible. Hopefully, this change is not too inconvenient. We continue to be very excited about our graduation ceremony this year and are looking forward to the in-person graduation ceremony.

We expect to have ticket information for American Family Field in the beginning of May.

Traditionally we recognize students with a 3.5+ (unweighted) GPA, select scholarships and students of the year for each high school department. More information on how the evening will work to be shared in the coming weeks.

Students who received a Senior Night Biography Form should submit that this week. Many students have not yet returned their form - please encourage your student. We want to recognize our excellent seniors

Spring Cleaning

As the days become longer and the sun a little warmer, we often think of Spring as a time to clear out and de-clutter our homes. This spring we challenge you to de-clutter your mind and take the time to do a little extra spring cleaning for your mental health.
