April arrives this week and brings with it many exciting activities. We have been sharing the excitement of our seniors who are receiving their college acceptance letters and committing to their top college choices. You can see the growing list of our seniors’ college commitments in our main office window which is a sure sign that the end of year is fast approaching. We are also looking forward to our spring musical, Fame, which will take place next week. As a reminder, school will be open for both staff and students on Monday, April 21st! Please be sure to mark your calendars.
