The final day of the 2017-2018 school year is this Friday, May 18 (the seniors were done last Friday).
Graduation is set for 2 p.m. Saturday, May 19 in the competition gym, and the ceremony is open to the public.
I want to wish our graduating seniors the best as they begin a new chapter of their lives.
Building issue: Last August, we successfully passed a $5.25 million dollar bond referendum to renovate the building and add some much needed space in some of our classrooms.
We are excited to say that work has already begun, and it will ramp up fully on May 21.
The work will be split into two summers, since the scope of the project is so large.
Below you will find the specific projects that will be completed this summer and next.

*Some asbestos removal in the elementary hallway and elementary classrooms
