Future Plans Day

On Thursday, May 30, we will be celebrating our senior class! Seniors are encouraged to wear a t-shirt or sweatshirt representing their plan for the future, whether they are headed to the military, college, or the workforce. Students who don't have a shirt dedicated to their future plans are invited to make one that is school-appropriate. 

There will be a group photo at 11:45 a.m. outside of the Bowen Building and a photo booth set up in the Founder's Court during community lunch for seniors to enjoy with their classmates.

Future Plans Survey

Seniors must complete the 2024 Future Plans Survey as it officially documents their plans for next year. If your student plans to attend college, the survey also gives us the information we need to send their final transcripts. Please note that this survey is different from the scholarship survey.

If your student is attending college, please click on the school they will be attending and where they would like their transcript sent. If you plan to enter the military after graduating, please email Mrs. Giamundo ( to let her know which branch.
