Dear Middle School Families, 

Exams for seventh- and eighth-graders begin on Friday, May 28th, and continue Tuesday, June 1st, and Wednesday, June 2nd. All students will need to complete their exams at school and in-person. Friday, June 4th, is an exam makeup day for middle school students who missed exams for any reason. Please contact the middle school office if your child will not be present on an exam day so it can be rescheduled. Final grades will not be issued for students who have not completed their exams or final projects.

My first letter with details about the closing ceremony from May 4th is available through this link. Please review the letter for specific logistics of the ceremony. One change will be a rain contingency plan. In that scenario, the ceremony will be moved to the theatre and available through Zoom. Only eighth-graders and their teachers will participate in the ceremony if it is moved inside. A decision will be made and families notified by 8:00 p.m. on Wednesday, June 2nd.

As we finish out the last two weeks of school, please contact your children’s advisors if you have any questions about the activities and schedules. It is hard to believe that this time of the year has come. I look forward to watching your children make memories as the school year finishes out.

Enjoy your evening,

Shaka Arnold
Head of Middle School
