Senior Exam Exemption Forms ALL IN!

We received so many forms! It's proof that our seniors are really putting forth great effort these last two quarters! We've already pulled the necessary data today (attendance, discipline, and grades) and are cross-referencing against all the medical and college visit forms we have kept on file for the second semester. Our goal is to have students' exemption letters delivered during 1st hour beginning Tuesday, May 8th! Students who meet all criteria without any appeals will be the first to receive their letters.

If your senior has asked for any appeal, that will take a little longer to process, as we want to be as thoughtful and thorough as possible. All appeals will be completed by May 11th, if not sooner.

As stated on the form, and will be reiterated on the letter to our students, once the exemption is earned - the students are responsible for keeping it for the next two weeks.

We do hope that this has been a worthwhile program. Even if a student falls short of earning an exemption - the benefit of staying focused and ending as strong as possible is not a wasted effort.

LAST CALL FOR DONATIONS for Senior Breakfast

THANK YOU to all those who have already donated!

We are working on a wonderful morning for our seniors.

At this time we are looking for cash donations to help purchase what we still need

cash or check (written out to Amy Mercurio) would be perfect.

We would like all donations by 5/11 to the office.

THANK YOU for your help.

There's STILL TIME to Purchase the 2017-2018 Yearbook!

There is still time to purchase the 2017-2018 yearbook!!! If you have not yet purchased your copy, don't miss out on this opportunity to relive some of your favorite memories of the year! Even if a book has been purchased for another sibling, we see the yearbook as an opportunity to preserve memories for every student. A yearbook becomes priceless as time passes and cherished moments fade as the years go by. In twenty years, we will need the yearbook to relive, remember and respect the moments that were so defining to us in high school.

BUT WAIT—THERE’S MORE! If you order a yearbook, you will receive a FREE autograph insert THIS May to pass around and have friends sign! Don’t miss out on this great opportunity!

THE LAST DAY TO PLACE ORDERS FOR THE YEARBOOK IS MAY 18TH, 2018!!! If you believe you have already purchased a yearbook, please verify with Miss Gallagher for confirmation at"
