Regardless, March also signals the end of the third grading period at Seymour High School, the start of the last grading period, the shift of emphasis to End of Course Assessments, and the scheduling of students for the 2014-2015 school year. We also shift our thinking to the end of school activities that will affect our senior class. There is a lot going on and I will soon be meeting with seniors to discuss their final days at SHS and all of the events that we have planned. Please note that our daily announcements will contain important dates and announcements as we proceed through the spring.
Seymour High School will once again host the IHSAA boys’ basketball sectional, regional and semi-state during the first three weeks of March. The grading period will end on Friday, March 21 and report cards will be sent home with students on Friday, April 4. Spring Break is March 24-28.
Other important March events include:
March 2 IHSAA Boys’ basketball sectional
March 4 and 5 Blood Drive
March 7 and 8 IHSAA Boys’ basketball sectional
March 8 SAT
March 15 IHSAA Boys’ basketball regional
March 14 and 16 Spring Musical
March 21 End of 3rd 9 weeks
March 22 IHSAA Boys’ basketball semi-state
March 24-28 Spring Break
Looking ahead, since we have extended our school days, graduation is still slated for June 1. So far we’ve had a good school year. Our 2013graduation rate is 94%. Our ACT and SAT scores are higher than in recent years and our attendance rate has improved. Our goal is to work hard and prepare students for End of Course Assessment exams that will be given in May. In like a lion…….hopefully, out like a lamb.
