From The Principal

Dear  Chieftain Families,


It’s hard to think about these last two weeks of school as the temperatures have risen, the sun has been constant, and summer has certainly begun.  In school, please remember we have a couple more weeks, and a lot of fun events as we close out the 2017-18 school year and get ready for 2018-19 to begin.  We have our     Underclassmen Awards Breakfast on Monday morning at 7:45. Students invited will have already received a letter home.  We then have our Cap and Gown distribution next Monday at 9:30 am.  Seniors will enter through door 11 and go directly to the auditorium and then directly out again!  Mandatory commencement practice at DTE is on Tuesday, June 5 starting at 11:30 am, Prom is Thursday and Saturday, June 9 at 4pm will come more quickly than you can imagine!  We’re looking forward to a wonderful Commencement Ceremony at DTE Energy Music Theatre. 

We also have our underclassmen final exams in two weeks!  It is a little different this year, as we go through Friday.  The schedule is: 

Wednesday, June 13: 1st and 2nd Hour Exams (release at 10:22)
Thursday, June 14: 3rd and 4th Hour Exams (release at 10:22)
Friday, June 15: 5th and 6th Hour Exams (release at 10:22)
