The last few months of school are here! April and May keep students extremely busy, and in 6 short weeks, on Saturday, May 14 at 2:00, the class of 2021 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 be on Wednesday, May 11, at 10:00. Seniors will practice for their graduation ceremony prior to the awards at 8:30 a.m. During the practice, we will take seniors’ pictures in their cap and gown, both individual and class.  If you have questions, please contact the high school office.

Our last day of school is May 24 at 11:30. Before we get to May 24, we have 8 weeks of education and extracurricular activities and events, starting with Prom on Saturday, April 2. Hopefully, Mother Nature plays nice. The Grand March begins at 4:30. The school will open at 3:15. We will live stream this event on our district Facebook page. All pictures will be posted there as well.

Semester testing will take place on May 20 & 23. Tuesday,  May 25 will be semester test make-ups and a time for students to complete any missing assignments or have incomplete grades. These students will come in between 8:00 - 11:30 to get finished up. Students who are taking courses through Edgenuity must have all coursework completed by May 26 at 11:30, unless they have made prior arrangements with Mrs. Gochenour.
