After a long year of work, high school students got some time to celebrate their efforts on June 6. On this minimum day, classes were held for only 20 minutes each – just enough for teachers to give students their final grades, and, in some classes, their final goodbyes. In between classes, students could stop by the tables set up in front of the Matthews Library to get breakfast or snacks via the boxes of bagels, fruit and pastries provided by the Student Council.
When classes were done, students made their way toward the MP room to watch the Advanced Studio Art students showcase their favorite pieces.
