Graduation Survey

Thanks to everyone for filling out the “Commencement Survey” this week. We had about 120 students and over 80 parents give their feedback. The results were clear as over 80% of students and parents would prefer a face to face ceremony when that is possible.

As a result, we will keep planning for that traditional type of commencement.

All indications we have received related to social distancing and large group gatherings point to those events not happening until later July. So, we are planning on utilizing the football field for the tentative date of Wednesday, July 29. We must continue to follow state guidelines in an effort to keep everyone safe. We are dedicated to having a wonderful ceremony for the Class of 2020.

Also, the All Night Party Committee is dedicated to celebrating seniors, and they are working with us to plan this event!

Light the Field for 2020
On Tuesday, May 19, the lights at the football field will go on in your honor at 8:20 pm (military time of 2020). You and your family will have to remain in your car for this event.

EDUCATION
REDEFINED

Our Personal Mastery educational experience has redefined education and has gained attention around the state and nation. Personal Mastery provides your child with personalized attention from teachers. Instead of teaching to a broad group of students without understanding of their individual strengths and weaknesses, Personal Mastery allows teachers to interact with students individually or in small groups to help them better address their weaknesses. In this way, we strive to help your child reach their full potential.
