Commencement - Details to be determined.

As you are well aware, COVID-19 is certainly changing the way we have to do things as a school and makes planning extremely challenging given that we do not know what options will be available to us tomorrow, let alone in June, for senior activities.  This fact does not dampen our excitement for the Class of 2021 and just requires a lot more patience and flexibility from all of us.  At this time, we can only provide information in some areas and we will update you as soon as possible regarding plans in the other areas.  We truly admire the fortitude that we witness in our seniors during this challenging time.  Our hearts are with the Class of 2021 and we thank you for your continued patience!

Parent Communications

This section will include the dates when emails were sent and the subject line of the email. Please note, these emails are delivered to the primary parent email address that was provided in the Aeries Parent Portal. Each parent email will also be forwarded to seniors at their school email address.

Summer Message from Mrs. Lemkau

These past few months have been uniquely strange and stressful for some many of us.  I am so glad that we made it to summer!   I am writing today to encourage each student from the Class of 2021 to shift their focus from the present to the exciting future ahead. 
 
I will be offering support to students all year, including this summer, through my Class of 2021 Google Classroom designed to increase college readiness.  The join code is ivqz44j for students.  I will be uploading weekly videos, posting important resources, and providing guidance on the entire college application process.

FINALS SCHEDULE & SENIOR WEEK ACTIVITIES

  • Senior Check-out: Seniors return books, clean out lockers, finalize any outstanding academic concerns, and have a variety of areas checked off by staff members.
  • Senior Signing Ceremony: This event is to honor standout seniors in the Class of 2020 as well as given an opportunity for the students who have made commitments for the upcoming year to have their future plans publicly announced.  Senior parents (only due to MPR capacity) are invited to join us as we celebrate the senior class.  Please review the email sent to you with a few more details. 
  • Senior Breakfast: PATS is graciously hosting the breakfast for our seniors. Seniors will eat together and the commencement rehearsal will follow (at TPS – not the commencement venue.)

* Currently our plan is as follows, however things may change due to COVID-19 mandates.  We will update you and this page as the date gets closer.  

  • There are no sitting fees
  • No money is required on picture days.
  • These photos will be used for the Senior Class yearbook page.
  • After proofs are available, whether you purchase a photo package or not, you will be able to choose the photo you like best from the “traditional” attire photos (not cap & gown attire) and that photo will be included in the yearbook.
  • The following information may change:  You do not need to purchase any special clothing for this photography sitting.  A traditional formal black drape and a mock suit (jacket, shirt, and tie) will be provided.  You will be selecting the photo for the yearbook from this attire.
  • Students will also be taking photos in a provided cap and gown.  This will be an option for you to purchase, but will not be included as a yearbook choice. 

At the beginning of the second semester, we will provide an update on how many each senior will receive. 

Once details for this section are established, this page will be updated.

Unfortunately, Disneyland has officially cancelled the Grad Nite event as of November, 2020 due to continued state guidelines that affect amusement parks.  Like many of the senior activities, we are closely monitoring what options we may have and will let you know any updates as soon as possible.
