Dear seniors and senior parents/guardians,
We hope that this finds you all doing well, enjoying the summer, and getting some well deserved rest. Please find a newsletter attached that outlines some key things students can be working on during the summer before the big senior year. The newsletter also includes some upcoming events, tips for writing the college essay, info on SAT Subject tests, and NCAA eligibility.
Don't forget to complete all of your summer assigments for your SHS courses.
The Guidance office is closed for the summer. The School Counselors will be back on August 24th. Until then, please contact the main office with any questions or concerns at 781-596-8830.

AP Biology Update
In the spring, as part of our course scheduling process, we had to announce that Advanced Placement (AP) Biology would not be running in 2015-16 due to low enrollment. However, with the support of the Gelfand Family Charitable Trust, we are exploring options that may permit us to run the class. This will still be subject to scheduling around other classes. While we cannot guarantee anything at this point, we hope to be able to bring back the class for this year.
If you would like to be considered for AP Biology for the 2015-16 school year, please call the High School main office (781-596-8830) by Friday, July 17, 2015. We will then review the scheduling options and will let you know shortly if the class is running and if you are enrolled.
In future years, our plan will be to offer AP Biology and AP Environmental Science to run in alternate years. Students will be able to work with their guidance counselors to put together a multi-year plan. The specific schedule will be published in the Program of Studies.
