Class of 2023 Graduation Activities
Seniors and parents: mark your calendars for these important graduation activities!
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
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.

Can We Reach You In Case Of Emergency?
It’s important to keep your contact information up to date and opt-in to receive text messages from Maeser — in case of an emergency, this is how we notify parents! In addition, we use your contact information to notify you about important school events and school fees deadlines.
Here’s how to make sure you’re getting all of our important announcements and information:
Opt In For School Text Messages
Our school utilizes the SchoolMessenger system to deliver text messages to your mobile phone with important information about events, school closings, safety alerts, student fees, and more. We will only use text messaging for urgent and important information.
You can participate in this service by sending a text message of “Y” or “Yes” to our school’s short code number, 67587.
You can also opt out of text messages at any time by simply replying to one of our messages with “Stop”.
Update Your Contact Information
