  • Congratulations! Congratulations to all our seniors for all their accomplishments this year and in previous years! I have every confidence that each of you will go on to do great things in our community and the world at large. I also want to congratulate all our rising students who will return to us in the fall to continue their educational journey. We always enjoy seeing how much each of you have grown and hearing about your summer adventures.Did you know that there is actually an extra week of summer vacation this year due to the way the 2016-17 school calendar ended and when the 2017-18 one will begin? You are welcome! :-) Have a great summer!
