HIGH SCHOOL RECOGNITION PROPOSAL
Unit 5 is considering a change to its current practice for high school academic recognition. The proposal is to eliminate class rank and replace the valedictorian and salutatorian distinction with other levels of recognition, beginning with the Class of 2018 (current freshman). We believe this change will encourage more students to take courses aligned to future interest and will result in many more high achieving students being recognized at commencement.

Last Day of School Set
Please see this PDF for an agenda of activities that will take place at the 6th grade orientation on April 15th at 6:00 pm. A welcome message will begin in the gymnasium for everyone in attendance. 5th graders from our feeder elementary schools will be receiving a similar handout to bring home if they haven’t already. Hope to see you there!
