Mid- June Update

Principal's Update

As we close in on the end of the school year, just a few things to update:

Final Exams - Start next week and students are required to stay in class through 90 minutes of the exam period. After 90 minutes if they have finished they may leave.

Uncleared accounts - students should clear all of their accounts with teachers before they leave for the summer. If a student does not clear themselves with the teachers we will be sending letters home over the summer stating what is owed to the school.

Summer  Office Hours - Over the summer the office will be open normal business hours  (8-3PM), however please call in advance to ensure that someone is present if you need access to the school.

This year's spring musical SMILE
This Thursday, Friday and Saturday: April 6th, 7th, and 8th at 7 p.m. in the Swampscott High School Auditorium!!
Music by Marvin Hamlisch (A Chorus LineThey're Playing Our Song) Book and Lyrics by Howard Ashman (Little Shop of HorrorsBeauty and the BeastAladdin)
SMILE takes us back to the Young American Miss pageant in Santa Rosa, California circa 1985. Love, friendship, jealousy, betrayal, and backstage drama combine with big hair (some of us remember!) and shoulder pads for an evening of tuneful delight and comedy! (SMILE has some strong language and mild adult themes).
