Junior/Senior Formal UPDATE
Saturday, May 15

It has definitely been a year of changes for everyone, and we appreciate your patience as we navigate our way through this school year. With regulation changes for outdoor events and the number of ticket sales, we will now be able to host one combined Junior/Senior Formal on Saturday, May 15, from 7:00-9:00 pm. There will no longer be an event on Friday, May 14.  We look forward to an exciting “Evening Under the Stars” all together beneath our big tent. If you are a junior and can no longer attend with the date change to May 15, please talk to Mr. Holtrop for a refund. Thank you again for walking alongside us in these ever-changing times.
