The last few months of school are here! April and May keep students extremely busy, and in 6 short weeks, on May 12, the class of 2018 will be walking across the stage to celebrate 13 years of school. We are so excited for the seniors and their families and look forward to celebrating this huge milestone. The Senior Awards Ceremony will again be a separate celebration from graduation. On Thursday, May 10, seniors will practice for their graduation ceremony at 9:00 a.m. At 10:00, we invite you to join us in celebrating the seniors’ academic and scholarship achievements during our Senior Awards Ceremony. We are very excited to begin a new tradition in honoring our seniors’ accomplishments. After the award ceremony is over, we will take senior pictures in their cap and gowns, both individual and class.  If you have questions, please contact the high school office.

Our last day of school is May 23. Before we get to May 23, we have 8 weeks of education and extracurricular activities and events, starting with Prom on Saturday, April 14.  The Grand March begins at 6:30. We invite you to come out to the school and see our students dressed up in their tuxedos and elegant gowns.

On April 3 all juniors will take the ACT test at LoMa. All juniors have been preparing for this test during advisory. The students are working through sample test questions and the teachers are guiding them through test-taking techniques and strategies to successfully take the ACT test.

So much is about to happen. Please watch our District Web page for upcoming events; but here are a few highlights:


  • April 14: Prom

  • April 29: Ceremony of Roses @ 1:00

  • May 1: 5th - 8th Grade Spring Concert

  • April 26-28: Greenhouse Sales

  • May 5: Large Group Music Contest

  • May 9: Baccalaureate in the High School in the Auditorium @ 7:00

  • May 10: Senior Graduation Practice @ 9:00

  • May 10: Senior Awards Ceremony @ 10:00 in HS Gym

  • May 12: Graduation at 2:00


There are many other school activities as we finish the school year, so please make sure to check out the school calendar and announcements on the website often as things change.


Have a wonderful spring and we hope to see you at the many students activities.
