It is hard to believe that summer is already here! I would like to thank all of our parents, freshmen through senior class, for a wonderful year at East Aurora High School. The graduating class of 2014 will be missed and I wish them the very best as they embark on new adventures.
When graduation is finished it means the high school will have to prepare for another incoming class to enter our building. We are all very excited about our incoming freshmen and we feel well prepared to meet their academic and social needs next year. We have spent a lot of time this year improving processes and support systems and we are ready to put them in place. We hope these new processes will equate to a more satisfying and fulfilling experience for all of our students next year and put them in a position to be more successful.
I would like to encourage parents to keep their sons and daughters active this summer. The more students are involved this summer the better. A more active and engaged student during summer months is more prepared to begin school when the summer ends. As many of you already know, the District will be offering summer camps for free again this summer and free summer camps is a great way to keep your son or daughter active and engaged.
Also, summer school classes will be offered again this summer at Waubonsee Community College. If your son or daughter is interested, please contact Waubonsee directly and see what classes still may be open and of interest. Also, we have a few summer school classes that will be offered on campus this year, here at East Aurora High School. The more required coursework a student can satisfy in the summer, the more opportunities to take elective opportunities during the school year when school resumes in the fall.
Have a safe and relaxing summer break. I look forward to seeing you on Aug. 25, the first day of the 2014-2015 school year.
