Summer Reading Suggestions
Snow Falling
By: Jane Gloriana Villanueva

Suggested by: Gabriella Peterson (12th)

Theme: Reconnect

Summary: This book was about a perseverant and independent woman named Josephine who is very determined to achieve her goals and be the best woman she can be in early 1900s Miami. She has a relationship with a man named Martin Cadden, but throughout the book, the relationship is handed its fair share of obstacles. These obstacles and circumstances cause Josephine and Martin to lose trust in one another. The book's storyline has the two partners come back to one another to reconnect and rekindle the love they have always had in their hearts for one another.

Take Away: I learned from reading this book that obstacles and hard times never break that true love; true love withstands all and is entirely given with wholehearted trust and commitment.
Parent Questions
Q: Can you provide information for parking permits?

A: Information regarding student parking forms will be provided in the August Back To School Newsletter. Students should be prepared to present copies of their vehicle insurance and driver's license. Parking fees are $50.00 and will be available for purchase beginning in August.

Verification of Enrollment Forms (VOE)

On occasion throughout the summer, students need to obtain Verification of Enrollment (VOE) forms in order to pursue driver's licenses. In order to plan for an issuing Administrator to be able to offer this to a student in light of our reduced summer office hours (Monday - Thursday 9:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m. | Closed on Friday), we have established a request link for students to use. An issuing Administrator will check this link daily (M-F) and will reach out to the student to schedule a time to pick up their form. We do not issue the form electronically.
