Testing will continue until June 23.

The night of June 23, starting at 7 p.m. will be the Baccalaureate ceremony, taking place this year at the Peniel Presbyterian Church on Quaker Street.

Graduation rehearsal takes place the morning of June 24 with the graduation ceremony starting at 6:30 p.m. outside on the lawn off of the junior high school wing, weather permitting. The ceremony will be held inside if it rains; school officials say seating is unlimited on the lawn, but will be confined to ticket holders should the event need to move indoors. This year marks the third year graduation ceremonies are to take place outside.
