Superintendent Luncheon Honorees

Congratulations to Meghan Fitzpatrick and Lina Abu-Absi who were selected for recognition at the annual Merrimack Valley Superintendent's Association Luncheon. These two students have worked extremely hard and are so deserving of this honor. They attended a luncheon on Wednesday, May 1st to receive their awards.


Students will be at the high school taking pictures from 4:00-5:30 on Saturday afternoon prior to leaving for the Prom. This is a voluntary event.

Prom... May 4, 2019

Our Prom will be taking place next Saturday evening at the Royal Sonesta Hotel Ballroom in Cambridge, MA.. Obviously, this is a night to remember for all attendees. As an administrator, my main focus is making sure that all students remember this evening in a positive light. As exciting as this season is for our students, statistically it is also a very dangerous one. Please join us in emphasizing good decision making amongst our students during this time of year.

Strength and Conditioning Summer Program

Mr. Unger is running his strength and conditioning program again this summer. Details were sent to student emails earlier this week.
