Recognition of Bosse Seniors

Monday, May 16, the at 9:45, Senior’s at Bosse will come to Harper, then Washington, followed by visit to Lodge. This will be an opportunity for us to stand in the hallway and cheer for this year’s graduates.

I am not sure what time they will arrive but I will do an all call when they arrive. I will have them proceed toward the Cafeteria hallway and they will make one big loop around the building, wearing their cap and gown.

Next Four Days!

Staff, these final four days are extremely important and it is vital that you keep an urgency for learning all the way to the last minute. While you have students in class this week:

  • Be up circulating at all times!
  • Give them learning opportunities that are engaging!
  • Make every minute count from bell to bell!
