We celebrated the Class of 2019’s official commitment-to-college day on Wednesday with a class photo and a congratulatory cake! Next up on the seniors’ calendar (besides AP exams; more on that below) is Prom. Some important Prom details to share, for all parents: This year’s Prom is next Friday, May 10th at C2 Event Venue, 225 E. Breckinridge Street (very close to the Salvation Army/Old Male gym where we play volleyball and basketball), from 8:00 – 11:00 p.m. All students, grades 9-12, are invited to come (and may bring a date or not). The junior class is selling tickets at school to 9th – 11th graders (seniors attend free) and will keep those funds to roll into their budget for next year’s Prom.
Each year, students raise money (through bake sales, car washes, the Wyvern Store, the Senior Auction, etc.) that is banked for their senior year, when they then are able to plan the Prom they want (and make a class gift to the school). The Class of 2019 has been working hard on this event and we’re all looking forward to it!
We ended up with a beautiful day for Advisee Games last Friday, with students enjoying relay races, tug o’war (with the crown taken home by the Trent Apple/Alissa Shoemaker advisee group), the ever-popular costume contest (won by the Tony Butler/Terri White advisee group) and a new addition this year: kickball games featuring 9th vs 10th graders and 11th vs 12th graders. My advisee group notched the overall win, bringing the trophy back where it belongs (as I consider it)! Friday also marked the conclusion of our community service endeavors for the year. As a community, we performed about 2,500 hours of service this year, and hopefully both helped students to see and care about the world around them and cultivated within them a desire to continue serving others.
AP Exams start next week! See the calendar in this newsletter (or the school calendar on the Parent Portal and school website) for specifics. Students are excused from attending other classes on days when they have an AP Exam, except if they have an AP class for which the exam has not yet occurred. Good luck to all our students taking APs!
