    On Thursday, we have scheduled a time for all Seniors to meet virtually with our Herff Jones Representative, Chris Wieczorek, regarding the ordering of senior graduation materials.  We will also do a parent meeting for all senior parents on Thursday night at 6:00.  I will email out a zoom link to parents and students this week for the virtual meeting.  I encourage all senior parents to attend this meeting.

    Thank you to everyone who was able to join us for our first ever Virtual Open House earlier this afternoon.  It seemed to go pretty well from my vantage point, but I am aware of a few issues that took place.  As we start the school year , I think it is important that all be patient and flexible with one another to ensure a successful year.

    This week is the last week of the 2019-2020 school year.  This has certainly been a challenging school year, but I want to thank our staff and our parents for working so hard to ensure that our students were able to be successful during this time of remote learning.   We will be mailing report cards home starting on Wednesday, June 17th.
