Message - May 2017

Dear Parents, students, and community,
May is upon us, and with that, many exciting events! In the next weeks so much will be going on:  end of year banquets, final concerts, award ceremonies for all grade levels, spring sports tournaments, exams (including AP and Dual Enrollment exams), and finally, graduation! We are so proud of all of our students, and we are very excited for our seniors as they begin a new chapter in their lives! We have mailed a letter home to senior parents, and it's posted online as well. Please take time to read it for graduation information. 
Also, please note that summer school is going to be at Riverdale this summer - this is a change from Blackman due to road work on Blaze Drive. Contact your child's counselor if you have questions.
We are currently also working on the schedule for next year and will continue to tweak it to make the best possible master schedule to meet the needs of your students. Please note that class changes are not being made at this time as we are making the schedule and hiring teachers to meet your students course selections. 
Parents, if you need anything, please do not hesitate to call. Make sure you have your parent portal login and check your student's progress routinely. If you have questions about your login or about your student's progress, please call. We will take care of you!
