In response to many requests we received last year, the format of the awards ceremonies has been changed. Rather than having two ceremonies, we have combined them into one ceremony that is scheduled for June 5 at 6:30 in the auditorium. The 9-12 students who are receiving academic awards will be honored first and then we will move into the scholarship awards ceremony for the rest of the evening. This change should only add 10 minutes to the original June awards ceremony. I am planning a reception prior to the ceremony in lieu of the dinner. It will begin at 5:30. Invitation letters will be going out shortly.
Over the past few months, we have received a significant amount of information on vaping/e-cigarettes from the St. Lawrence Prevention Council. They have presented on the dangers of vaping/e-cigarettes to administration, staff and students. This is in response to a few incidences of vaping that have occurred at the high school. Although the number of incidences are small, we feel the potential harm from vaping to our student population is high. I would like to pass that information on to you, which can be accessed through the parent resources tab on the high school webpage.
