I hope you have been able to enjoy this cold and damp Memorial Day Weekend. I can hardly believe that we are entering June and our final twelve days of the school year. It has been a long year with many transitions our students and faculty have endured. A summer break will be most welcome by all. However, we are not quite there and need to stay focused and attentive to end the year as strong or stronger than we began.
Students in grades 9 - 11 are encouraged to directly communicate and engage with their teachers for any required support or assistance. Students are also encouraged to make effective use of the Flex block time to address any academic needs.
For the students and households of the Class of 2021 this will be your final weekly Principal’s Message. We thank you for all you have accomplished and contributed to Stoneham High School. We are so proud of you. You have excelled in the classroom, stage and fields and courts of competition. Thank you for a tremendous four years! Thank you parents and guardians for what you have done in supporting your student and SHS.
Have a wonderful week of celebration and reflection! See you at Graduation!
Here’s to a great week!
