May 2021

May 2021

The 2020-2021 school year is rapidly coming to an end, which means graduation is approaching.  The graduation ceremony is scheduled for 11:00am Saturday, May 22nd, at Kile Field.  The entrance to Kile Field will be open at 10:00am, and there is no reserved seating, so please plan accordingly.    


A reminder to seniors, all academic requirements and fees/fines must be met/paid prior to the mandatory graduation rehearsal on Thursday, May 20th.  You must participate in the mandatory graduation rehearsal to be eligible to participate in the ceremony held on Saturday, May 22nd.  If you have any questions, please contact the high school office.  


High school students (grades 9 – 11) have taken their End-of-Course exams, which concluded on Friday, April 30th.    The end-of-course exams included Algebra I (8th, 9th & 10th grade students), Geometry (9th, 10th & 11th grade), Biology (10th grade), English II (10th grade), American History (10th grade) and American Government (11th grade).  I would like to thank the staff and students for the excellent effort put forth during this stressful time.    


I would like to take this opportunity to thank the Board of Education, fellow administrators, faculty, staff, students and community on a productive school year.  I believe collaboration among all of us had a direct impact on the success we experienced this school year.   I will end the last newsletter of the 2020-2021 school year with, “Isn’t it great to be a Roughrider!”  


If you have any questions, please contact the high school office at (614) 879-7681 ext. 2300
