12th Grade Due Date Corrected - Now says June 8th

Dear Students and Families,

Some of you have noticed that I am out of the office Thursday and Friday. I am on vacation. Hence why I am late in communicating our weekly update. My 10th-grade son and I are in Indianapolis for the weekend as we start the search for colleges. It is fun, exciting, and a little nerve-wracking.

This week's newsletter focus is on:

  1. Graduation June 13th
  2. Prom June 11th
  3. End of Trimester Deadlines
  4. Student Expectations - Staying strong and committed to our number one priority
  5. Traffic Flow at the mall


The date for students to receive their diplomas is June, 13th. Event details will be forthcoming.

Reminder - PROM - JUNE 11

Prom will be held at Majestic Oaks on Friday, June 11th for Juniors and Seniors. More information will be forthcoming.
