SENIOR CLASS - Senior year is often the time in a student’s life when the most memories are made and they receive closure on their schooling experience. In an effort to provide our soon-to-be graduates similar experiences, the senior class student officers have held several meetings to discuss various options that are permissible under the current state guidance. We would like to thank these student officers for their hard work and dedication to their school throughout this experience.
