Senior Board Volunteers Needed

Open to all parents and community members

The Senior Project is a cumulative activity that showcases our students’
reading, writing, and speaking skills, as well as emphasizes many important “soft skills”
such as time management, problem solving, and work ethic. 
The Senior Boards are the final step in the Senior Project
process where our students present their final product.

In order for this to be successful, we are asking for parent and community
volunteers to be project judges for the Senior Boards 
on Friday, April 12th from 9:30 am - 3:00 pm.

Underclassmen parents, this is a great opportunity for you to see
and understand what your children will be doing their senior year.
Senior parents, what better way to support your senior than
serving on a board that celebrates their final high school project?

If you are interested in participating in this very special event,

Please contact Denise Orsini at [email protected] if you have any questions.
