Typically, the PTA has limited involvement with year-end events for seniors; however, as we all know, this is not a typical year. The PTA is working with the high school administration and other parent organizations to explore various ideas and ways to celebrate the Class of 2021.
Thank you to those parents who have reached out and shared their thoughts on ideas for the Class of 2021. If you have any ideas/suggestions for the Class of 2021, please complete this form.
