8-12th Grade Exam Schedules
Parents of 8th – 12th grade students should be on the lookout at the beginning of next week for your student’s individual exam schedule. It should be in your inbox by mid-week. Please pay special attention to the times of each exam. Students should only come to school for their exam during Exam Week (May 28-31) and should be picked up when they are finished.
Academic Awards Assembly
The Academic Awards Assembly will take place on Friday, May 24 at 2:15 in the Activities Center. This is a Tier 3 dress day for all students. Parents are invited and encouraged to arrive a few minutes early to get a seat before students arrive. The Spirit Wear Kiosk will be open. Parking will be available at Scottish Rite Temple.
As we near the end of the year, we ask that students and parents take care to be sure that the dress code is followed. This includes regular Tier 2 days, as well as special Tier 3 and Tier 1 days. The dress code can be found in the student handbook, and questions about appropriate dress can always be directed to Division Directors. Thank you for your help.

UPPER SCHOOL NEWS
The Upper School LF Department is holding a Book Swap for students May 22-24. We hope faculty, students, parents, and friends will send in gently used books, in any genre, (mystery, sci-fi, dystopia/utopia, sports, biography, young adult, classic lit), anything enticing and appropriate for 9th-12th grade readers. There is a box in the Massey foyer for donations, and books can be easily dropped in the box by the stairs during morning car pool. Some annotating or light penciling is fine, but we really want books that are in good/readable/attractive condition. Upper School students will visit the swap during LF classes, May 22-24, and take home a great read or two. Please bring /send in your books by Monday May 20th. E-mail Lauren Clelland with any questions. Thank you!
Senior Parents – Please review these Graduation Details with your senior. Graduation is only 16 days away!
Senior Speeches will take place on Thursday, May 23rd at 11am. Participating seniors will speak to the entire upper school about his/her personal values, beliefs, and life lessons. Participating seniors this semester: Abbott Aiken, Benjamin Arnett, Morgan Boseman, Rachel Garrett, Douglas Kurtz, Benjamin Marcia, Cole Myers, Benjamin Northen, Alex Phillips, Reade Stallings, and Phil Wood.
