For those of you that have not reviewed our mission statement recently, I will remind you that the first sentence contains the words “college preparatory.” This is not by accident, and we are constantly thinking in terms of how best we can prepare our students for this next experience. So, it is at this time of year that we use college admissions as a justification to celebrate the success of our program and the hard work of our seniors.
I hesitate to say it but by the time you are reading this letter we will be within a few weeks of the first day of school. For the younger members of the community, I am sure this is a frightening development, but for the adult crowd, there may be a bit of excitement at the prospect. Regardless, count this letter as a reminder to make the most of the remainder of the summer.
