Prom 2018

The high school celebrated their prom on Saturday, April 28th at Duneland Falls Banquet Hall in Chesterton. The theme was Moroccan Nights, and the hall was decorated beautifully with magic carpets, genie lamps, and glowing lanterns. The junior class worked very hard to make the night special and memorable for all students. Along with dancing, eating, and taking pictures in the photo booth, a prince and princess from the junior class and a king and queen from the senior class were chosen by the students in attendance. The junior class prince chosen was Tyler Hunter, and the junior class princess chosen was Arianna Hurtado. The senior class king chosen was Chris Tyler and the senior class queen chosen was Star Chiang. Overall, the night was beautiful and fun for all the students involved. The junior class is already beginning to make preparations for next year's prom.

Notes from the nurse, Mrs. Guarnero

Parents or guardians of current students in grade 11-

The Indiana State Department of Health has updated the required immunizations for the 2018-2019 school year. Students entering grade 12 must have a MCV4 booster for the Meningitis vaccine they received in sixth grade and two Hepatitis A vaccines. The minimum interval between the first and second dose of Hepatitis A is six months. It is important for you to review your child’s immunization record to make sure they do not need to start the Hepatitis A vaccine now. The Meningitis booster and the two Hepatitis A vaccines are required to start the 2018-2019 school year. Do not delay and contact your healthcare provider today to verify if your child needs the vaccines for next school year. Feel free to contact the school with any questions.
