Happy Memorial Day weekend! We know these past few weeks have been tough, but you’re almost there. Summer is almost here! In the following weeks, remember that we have June 1st and June 9th off! Classes end on June 13th, and the last day of school is on June 28th.
We also hope that all those freshman and sophomores out there had an AMAZING semiformal! We heard it was fantastic and super fun. For those of you that did not go, try to go to the next school dance! School events are a great way to have fun with your friends, relieve stress and even meet new people in your grade. Speaking of stress, finals and regents are coming up VERY soon! It’s time to start putting aside some time everyday to study for your exams. Even half an hour everyday will improve your results in the long run! Here is the link to the regents schedule: http://www.p12.nysed.gov/assessment/schedules/2016/regents-616rev.pdf
Here are links to a few study guides:
Stay tuned for more!
