The warm weather and storms have appeared, seniors have graduated and school is done for summer. I hope everyone has a safe and exciting break.
Use the break to continue learning. There are hundred of options out there. Read a book( or several books), play games, take DACC classes or anything else that can stimulate your mind.
Remember to take some time to enjoy your family and friends and get outside and enjoy the weather. You may even make some money by finding a job. The key for all of students is to be active. Don't waste your summer! Do something with it!
Important Upcoming Dates:
Check in early August for upcoming 2013-14 school dates.
