Hello and Welcome Back to the Senior Class of 2021!!
My name is James Landreau and I will once again be serving as the Senior Class advisor along with Mrs. Jessica Lundy as our new Graduation Coach! We are so excited to be here to help you as you begin your final year of High School! For some of you, I am sure it felt like today would never come. For others, I can imagine it’s hard to believe you are a senior and how did it happen so fast? Regardless of which feeling you may have; the truth is this is your time! This is your year! The Class of 2021 is here to leave their mark on North Springs High School.
While we can all acknowledge that this is not how you envisioned your senior year starting out, we want you to know, we all feel the same way and that we are committed to doing everything we can to make sure your Senior year is everything you hoped for and more! Now is the time to remember all that it has taken to get here and to make a promise that you will continue to work hard, strive for success, and create those memory lasting moments to last a lifetime! It is true that this year will be filled with many, “This is the last time we’ll …. (fill in the blank)”, but it is also a year to formalize those plans for your future and become the best version of yourself as you set off for college, the military, or the work force! You will leave behind a legacy. It will be up to you as to what that legacy is! Make it the best it can be. Keep your head held high. Keep your eye on the future and know that come May 26th, your days of being a high schooler will conclude and the most exciting journey of your life will begin! Until then, we have much work to do, many things to accomplish, and together we will make this the best year yet!
Once again, we are working with our amazing Senior Parent Committee. These volunteer parents are such an incredible asset to our school and to the success of all things senior every year! Please read below about some if the things they do for the seniors. Also make sure to open the Senior Activities document included with this letter.
SENIOR ACTIVITIES COMMITTEE AND GRADUATION YARD SIGNS:
The Senior Activities Committee is run by parents of NS students and was put together to spoil the seniors during their final year of high school. The parents raise money and provide fun activities and special treats throughout the school year for the seniors. Please read the attached forms explaining more about the Senior Activities Committee AND graduation yard signs. Prices are lower if you order the yard sign now.
Parents need to print the forms and email them to Amy Coffsky: email@example.com
Donations for the Senior Activities Committee and the graduation yard signs can be made here and may be combined into one payment:
As soon as we are back in the building, we will do plenty for our seniors. If needed, we will plan special remote treats and activities.
Any questions? Email Amy Coffsky: firstname.lastname@example.org
SENIOR DUES- With the school year starting virtually, we are going to postpone the collection of senior dues. The dues are used to cover all on campus senior activities and graduation events. (This is separate from what the Parent Committee does for the students.) Additional items covered by the dues include: Senior T-shirt (get those creative minds going, I am looking for a great design for your class shirt. Submit ideas to Mr. Landreau.) Senior Lanyards, Senior Breakfasts, Spirit Week activities and more.
*Once students are cleared to return to campus, we will send out information regarding updated dues.
Graduation Cap & Gown- We are once again partnering with Balfour to provide our Graduation regalia. You can go online to www.gabalfour.com and order cap and gowns, additional senior swag, class rings, and letterman jackets. Please note that Balfour handles all their finances separately and the cost of Cap & Gown is NOT included in senior dues. It is a separate fee. A representative will also be on campus throughout the year once students return to the building.
Senior T-Shirt- As mentioned in the Senior Dues section, we are looking for the next great design for this year’s Senior Class shirt. Submit any ideas to Mr. Landreau (email@example.com) and we will allow the students to vote on which design they like. We will send out reminders and updates through the Senior TEAMS site.
Senior Class Teams- This year we will be using a Microsoft TEAMS Senior Page to distribute many of the senior updates, news, and upcoming events. This will be the official sounding board for senior information. Please make sure to join the TEAMS so you can stay up to date with information.
Here is the Join code for the Senior TEAMS page: du5xb39
Senior Hot Dates Calendar- Due to the virtual start, we are modifying the Senior events calendar and will send it out as soon as we confirm events and dates. It will also be posted on the website.
