Several important dates are coming this month for senior parents. May 16 is the last day of class. May 17 and 18 are semester test days. May 18 is also our Senior Awards Night in the competition gym. The program will begin at 6:30 PM. May 19 is the Senior Breakfast; students must sign up and pay $6 in the office by May 6. May 22 is graduation. Seniors must be here by 2:30 pm ready to line up.
or everyone else, the semester ends on June 2. Our semester tests will be on June 1 and 2.Please refer to the schedule in the handbook. Students who are not required to take tests may choose to do so if they desire; otherwise they do not have to be present.
