1 Reminder: Prom 2017 is tonight, Friday, May 19, from 8 p.m. to midnight at Pottawattomie Country Club in Michigan City. As Mr. Smith says, “Be safe and make good decisions.” We wish all of our prom-goers a fun evening together!
2 Spring finals begin on Monday, May 22 and continue through Thursday, May 25, and attached is the final exam schedule. If your student has a morning final, he or she is required to attend morning meeting following their exam at 11:15 a.m., and they may leave following the meeting if they don’t have an afternoon exam. Otherwise, your student only needs to be at school for their scheduled final exams. Regular school dress is required during exam week, and students do not need to wear a blazer on Tuesday. We ask that all students arrive to their assigned classroom 15 minutes prior to exam time, so everyone is situated and ready for exams to begin promptly at their assigned time. Students, be sure to get lots of rest, eat well, and get some good studying in over the weekend.
3 The long-anticipated Silver Lake Duathlon to benefit La Lumiere School is this Sunday, May 21, in Rolling Prairie, Indiana. Same day registration is not being offered this year, so make sure and register by noon tomorrow (Saturday, May 20) for the race that provides a unique blend of cross country running and a smooth, paved bike course through the surrounding country roads. Participants may also choose to enjoy a scenic three-mile Fun Run/Walk on a trail through meadows and woods. Please share the news with your friends. All proceeds from the race will benefit La Lumiere School. Students who volunteer at the event will receive service hours.
