@ A Glance
Congratulations Class of 2018!
Our Class of 2018 is officially graduated! Congratulations to all of them and their families. These 71 students combined for over $2.6 million in tuition assistance for their colleges of choice. It's a bit quieter around here today and the parking lot is a bit less full but we are a better place because they were here.
Class of 2018 Parents
I hope you've enjoyed these little updates through the years. They actuially are fun to put together; I always manage to learn something and I hope you did too. The next @ A Glance will be sent to the parents of the Classes of 2019-2022; if you'd still like to receive these, just let me know. Thank you Class of 2018 parents for your friendship and support and congratulations to your graduates!
Classes of 2019, 2020, & 2021
It's Finals Week!
Finals Week may not be quite as exciting as Graduation, but it too is upon us. If your student would prefer to dress a bit more casually for Finals, $5 Dress Code Passes are available in Mrs. Nussbaum's office through tomorrow. In case you've missed it the last couple of weeks, here is the schedule for Finals:
  • As with any school day, your student is required to be here from the opening bell until the end of the day. There are two exceptions:
  • Study Hall: If your student does not have an exam because of a Study Hall during that period and wants to leave campus, a parent must call to excuse the student and the student must return in time for the next exam.
  • Lunch: During finals, students have Open Lunch. Parent permission is not required to go off campus for lunch. Our cafeteria will stock sandwiches, chips and other light lunch options if students opt to stay at school. Lunch may also be ordered to be delivered to the school and paid for on delivery by the student(s).  (Please remind your student to tip the delivery person). Often times, a group will go in together to place an order.
