Important Dates:

Thursday the 16th; last day of school

Thursday is a half dayThere are no zero hour classes, and dismissal is at 11:00 AM. The van will still run afterward, but it will be leaving school at 11:00.

Friday the 17th; Upper School Drama Performance

There is the first performance of Thornton Wilder’s The Skin of Our Teeth by the Hillside Players at 7:30 that evening.

Saturday the 18th; Graduation, Celebration, Drama, more Celebrations

Like last year, graduation looks a little different than in the past. Graduation takes place at 4 PM on Saturday. In between graduation and the drama performance, we’ll have a community celebration in the main building; it’s pot luck, so bring a favorite dish to share (or just come and celebrate, no judgment here…). Then stick around for the final drama performance if you didn’t already catch Friday’s performance! Traditionally, after the final performance, many of the students pile into the vans for a late night pizza run.
