I will take Mrs. Antonoff/Mrs. Antonoff’s sub will stay behind. We will have a folder for each of the faculty with student information. We will assign any parent to their child’s advisory for the whole group check and to monitor the behavior of students walking around. Expectations for staff is to walk around and engage students you see in conversations as you encounter them in the park. Certainly you can hang out with groups of students. Students should wear their Class t-shirt if they ordered one. This is an independent trip, please talk with the kids about respectful behavior.


We depart OQ at 9:00 am

Graduation Practice Wednesday in the Morning

Staff, I need you to conduct this on your own. Have students line up by number in the hall way. Each student will get a number. We will be split, boys on one side and girls on the other. Graduation will be this way too. I will have numbers by Tuesday Afternoon. Students should remember the student in front of them and behind them. Make sure they are quiet and get them ready for excellent behavior at graduation.

Graduation Practice Thursday- Bring hat and tassel!

Report to Advisory fr attendance, then practice lining up again by number in the hallway after attendance. Board bus by 8:45. Arive at RV at 9:00am- We will walk the school with hats on as the elementary students congratulate us. No special order, just how we arrive two by two. Busses will be by advisory again. We will practice til we get it right.

End of Year Check out

PBS Battle Balls- Friday
