Class of 2024


Senior Families,

The Class of 2024 is in the homestretch, with only 9 days left in their high school career. Although this is an exciting and busy time for our students, it's crucial for seniors to maintain their focus on academics. Working diligently to excel in all classes and fulfill graduation requirements should remain their top priority. If you have any questions related to grades and credits, please contact your principal and counselor (link to contact information: HERE)


Now, let's highlight the senior events lined up for these final days:

  • Friday, May 17 - Mock Crash Event + Senior Picnic:

    • Tickets for the picnic will be sold Friday morning. Please bring $10 - cash only!

    • And PLEASE keep an eye on the weather for Friday. If there is rain, the Mock Crash WILL STILL occur outside. Please dress accordingly and bring umbrellas. For the Senior Picnic, we will still plan to hold it, but the location may be moved to inside. You can still bring your games to play in the gym! We will make a call about the weather closer to the time of the picnic.

  • Saturday, May 18 - Prom:

    • Doors open at 6:00 PM at The Falls in Columbia, Illinois. To be eligible to attend prom students must have purchased a ticket and must also be in attendance at school on Friday, May 17. We always want and encourage all of our students to attend a full day of school everyday, but to be eligible for after school activities they must be at school for a minimum of a half day. If students are absent two or more blocks on Friday they will not be able to attend prom.
