The After Effect


On last Wednesday and Thursday, the senior class parent meetings were a huge success! Parents and students visited the campus to hear about all of the exciting things the senior sponsors have planned for them on this school year. From prom attire to scholarships, and pictures for the yearbook, no stone of information was left out The information was thorough and well presented all because of the preparation of our senior sponsors. Mr. King and Ms. Lindsay would like to thank all guest speakers and translators. The entire SOC family would like to thank Mr. King and Ms. Lindsay for a job well done!
