Senior Week

Hello Raider Nation --

It is hard to believe that this is the final week for seniors and GRADUATION is this FRIDAY! Where has the year gone?? As I roam the halls with my rolling desk, my conversations with seniors is one encouraging them to FINISH STRONG. I am looking forward to the several events this week, including the senior picnic tomorrow afternoon. Please refer to the senior week schedule as exams, rehearsals, and other events are listed. The Senior Awards Celebration will take place on Wednesday evening. We would love to have you attend if your schedule permits. Just a reminder that this Friday, school will close at 9:45am for graduation. The schedule for Friday is as follows:

Pd Start End

1 725 745

2 750 805

3 810 825

Br 830 845

4 850 905

5 910 925

6 930 945

Graduation tickets will be distributed on Wednesday. Please make sure that any obligations you have are submitted so that we may hold students accountable.

You may recall that Susan Klender, our full-time registrar resigned from her position last month. As a result, our part-time registrar, Allison Sultan moved into the full-time position and we will now share a part-time registrar with Reservoir High School. Please join me in congratulating Allison on her new full-time position and welcoming our new staff member Deborah Merwitz who will split time between AHS and RHS. In case you were wondering, Deborah has a graduating senior!

This week at our ITL meeting, we will discuss the plan for those classes with majority seniors that now have a small number of students. Please stay tuned from your ITL on the plan moving forward regarding these classes.

I have attached a copy of the approved revision to the dress code below. Please take a moment to review as it will go into effect starting next school year ☹

Congratulations to Heather Haffey for an awesome dance concert this past weekend. I really enjoyed it. Also, the Black Student Union and BSAP programs honored their graduating seniors on Wednesday night in a very nice ceremony. Thank you to Cheryl Grimes, Michelle Howard, Sheila Carr-Spence, and Cherise Petty for putting together such a nice program.

Have a fantastic week!

See you tomorrow!
