This weekend marks the informal beginning of the eventful conclusion of the 2017-2018 school year. I take this opportunity to extend my very best wishes to the D’Evelyn students attending Prom and After Prom this weekend. It is an annual highlight to the school year, an opportunity for D’Evelyn juniors and seniors, along with their guests, to celebrate a wonderful weekend among their peers. I wish each student a fun, safe, and memorable weekend.
Upon return from the Prom weekend, we have only 12 days of school left for seniors, and 18 days remaining for students in grades 7 - 11. My hope is that this can be a fun and exciting time for all students, where all community members focus on finishing the second semester on a positive academic note. While AP exams do not begin until May 7th, and final exams are a bit further down the road, I encourage students to dedicate time in the upcoming days to maximize their attention to strong academic performance in preparation for their final tests, exams, and papers of the school year.
In my first full year as D’Evelyn principal, I look forward to celebrating the many great moments that await during the concluding weeks of the school year. It is an exciting last few weeks, with many opportunities to recognize D’Evelyn students for their great achievements, both inside and outside the classroom. While the final few weeks may feel like a whirlwind - wrapping up academic work, end-of-year activities, events, and competitions - there will be many milestones met by D’Evelyn students. I hope that all D’Evelyn students and families will have the appropriate opportunity to cherish the many great moments that await in the next few weeks.
Please consider joining the D’Evelyn community in supporting our students in one of the upcoming end of year events. While this list is not comprehensive, I hope it provides a glimpse of the many opportunities we have to support our students. For more information on these events, and others, please consult the D’Evelyn website, particularly the School Calendar and Sports Calendar linked to that page.
