SPLHS End of the School Year Festivities
Things to know…
Seniors should submit to Mrs. Marsh a list of scholarships they have been awarded by Friday, May 12th. Scholarship recipients are recognized at the Awards Banquet and these lists help ensure we acknowledge all scholarship recipients.
Finals week will be May 15 -18 with 2 finals per day. The usual protocol applies — All students meet in their homeroom at 9am, and everyone attends chapel daily at 11:30am. Closed campus for lunch. Quiet hours in the dorms. If a student does not have either a morning or afternoon exam, parents of day students may call or email, excusing them from that testing time period, and dorm students may stay in the dorm until chapel begins.
Finals week daily schedule: 9:00-9:10am Homeroom | 9:15-9:45am Morning Final Review | 9:45-11:15am Morning Final | 11:30am-12:00pm Chapel/Awards | 12:05-12:55pm Lunch | 1:00-1:30pm Afternoon Final Review | 1:30-3:00pm Afternoon Final
Finals schedule: Monday, May 15th – AM 1st Hour, PM 2nd Hour | Tuesday, May 16th – AM 4th Hour, PM 5th Hour | Wednesday, May 17th – AM 7th Hour, PM 6th Hour | Thursday, May 18th – AM 3rd Hour, PM 8th Hour

Thanks to the SOS, and in celebration of ending final’s week, Hannah Bananas will be on campus serving ice cream treats to all students starting at 1:00pm.
Seniors will meet in Weis Gym for graduation practice at 3:15. At that time they will receive their cap, gown & tassel. As commencement exercises are considered a formal event, seniors will receive specific dress code information, along with marching logistics.
Our SOS parent group hosts the annual spring Awards Banquet. The banquet will be held at Krueger Dining Hall and serving begins at 6:00pm. This is a time to celebrate student achievements. Seniors will be recognized for scholarships earned, and other awards will be presented. The choir will sing, and it’s usually a packed house. We hope you can be there.

Returning students will make 2023-2024 class schedules this summer. Students will receive emails to their splhs.org account sharing the class options and instructions for making an appointment to meet with Mrs. Schmidt or Mrs. Marsh. Appointments can be made for in-person or virtual meetings. Students in the class of 2024 will be given the first opportunity to schedule, followed by the class of 2025, and then the class of 2026. Members of the class of 2027 will make their schedules during orientation weekend in August.
