Final Exam Schedule

Final Exams start next week! Please help your students finish the school year strong as they prepare for Finals in their core classes. REMEMBER: Friday, May 19 is a required Final Exam day. Please plan ahead so your student does not miss their Finals in 1st and 3rd periods.

The schedule for each day of Finals is 8:00am to 12:30pm, with exams from 8:00-10:00am and 10:30am-12:30pm. Students will have a 30-minute break between Finals (from 10:00-10:30am).

  • Monday, May 22: Periods 2 & 4
  • Tuesday, May 23: Periods 5 & 7
  • Wednesday, May 24: Periods 6 & 8

Textbook Return/Replacement Fees

Teachers will gather textbooks from students before or during finals (teachers will give instructions). Any textbooks not returned on time will be charged to student accounts. We will notify parents by email if there is a charge. Students can still return textbooks through noon on the last day of school (Awards Day). After that, the fee will remain on their account for next school year.

Class of 2023 Graduation Activities

Seniors and parents: mark your calendars for these important graduation activities!

Thursday, May 25: Class Cap & Gown photo; Senior breakfast at Maeser
Friday, May 26: Graduation Rehearsal & Ceremony at Thanksgiving Point Show Barn

  • 9:00am: Graduation Rehearsal (mandatory for all graduates!)
  • 1:00pm: Graduation Ceremony — each graduate may invite up to 8 guests to attend

NG Make-up

All NG make-up should be completed by Review Day, especially for seniors who will be participating in graduation activities. There will be service opportunities the week of June 1st as teachers clean up their classrooms for summer. After this, NGs become NCs (essentially Fs) and coursework will need to be remediated.

Summer School Credit Recovery

Summer school offerings are intended to assist students in remediating (making up) failed or missing credits for graduation.

Maeser Summer Session

This summer Maeser will host two sessions on campus:

  • Session 1: June 5-23 from 9am-12pm at Maeser. Cost: $200 ($75 will be refunded if student completes coursework by Friday, June 16)
  • Session 2: June 12-23 from 9am-12pm at Maeser. Cost: $125


Registration is open now via Google Form. Please complete the Summer School Form and follow the payment options.

**Please note that payments take 2-3 business days to process electronically. You may also pay for summer school in the front office during normal business hours M-F in May.
