Interested in learning more about the impacts of a later school start time from students who experienced it? Wednesday January 15th in the auditorium we will be hosting a small group from Radnor Township High School who implemented a later start time this school year. A few students, a parent, and an administrator from Radnor will be sharing from their perspective and addressing some questions related to a later start time. Come on out to learn more from those who lived it. ACT will be cancelled on Wednesday to allow for teachers, staff, and students to attend.


The yearbook staff would like to remind seniors that the due date for parent patrons is this Friday.  Parent Patrons are those spaces towards the back of the yearbooks where parents can have special messages and photos printed for you.  If your parents plan to submit a personalized message for the yearbook, please remind them to turn that in soon.  Information and extra forms can be found on the senior webpage or in the senior Schoology group.  Thank you!
