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!)

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.
