Week Ending May 24
A few updates from UHS this week:
MCAS For Grade 10
Grade 10 MCAS is successfully completed, as have been all testing with grade 8. The only exam we have left to administer is the high school science exam, which is given in technology/engineering, physics, and biology on June 4-5, mostly for grade 9 students. We are pleased with the effort of our students with the math and English tests, as well as the grade 8 students who completed science.
Athletic Banquet This Week
In addition to handing out academic awards for Underclassmen on Friday, we held our annual Spartan Athletics banquet on Wednesday at Wright's Farm Restaurant. Many thanks to Chris Carbone, our athletic director, who organized and emceed the event. In addition to awarding varsity letters, senior plaques, and individual team awards for sportsmanship and coach awards, the two Spartan Athletes of the Year were awarded to Harrison Mansfield and Maggie Streichert. Madeleine Schleinitz received the District E Athletic Directors Award, and on Thursday, Olivia Hicks was honored at the MIAA annual celebration as the state student-athlete of the month for April.
In addition, our outdoor track and baseball teams clinched SWCL championships, and the girls tennis team is heading to the postseason. Congratulations to all of our Spartan student-athletes!
On Tuesday, we held our Tri-M Music Honor Society Induction. New inductees performed both vocals and instrumental pieces and were recognized for being "Modern Music Masters," which was supported by their excellence in music and ability to use music to support community service. We thank Ms. Penza and her officers for another great event!
Next week is our Senior Week. Our seniors will be going to Six Flags and Brownstone Park, as well as hosting our annual Graduate Parade and Cookout. We also have our scholarship and award night next Thursday night. We are proud to be celebrating with this great class of 2019, up and including graduation, which will be on Sunday, June 2 at 2:00 p.m. We hope that many in our community will be able to share in the excitement of these culminating events for our great senior class!
