May 22, 2022




I hope this message finds you well.   We enter the final week of classes and final exams for Seniors.  Activities this week include a variety of athletic games, Spring Concert, Senior Scholarship and Academic Awards Night and the Senior Family Picnic.  We continue to be busy with many fun and exciting activities taking place.


Seniors, we thank you for a wonderful past four years.  We have seen you overcome many challenges and obstacles these past years and are proud of your hard work and accomplishments.  Enjoy this final week of classes and be sure to complete your high school career in a fashion which best represents you and your success.


Students in grades 9 through 11 are reminded to keep focused.  The end of the year is near, but much remains to be completed.  Continue to speak with your teachers and to make meaningful use of FLEX to support your academics and successful completion of the school year.


A special shout out to the actors, crew and all involved in this year's Musical, Seussical The Musical, who presented a phenomenal show showcasing the amazing talent of our students and strength of our growing Drama Program.  Shout out for our Boys Varsity Baseball Team who won a first ever ML12 League Conference title.  Spartan Strong!


Have a good week!
