Dear UCA Family,
Our last prayer time this school year will be Monday, May 28, and we will be remembering our seniors as they move to a new chapter in their lives. Please join us one last time if you can!
12 days, 16 hours, 37 minutes, and 15 seconds until graduation!!
TEXT & LIBRARY BOOK RETURN
Please see the attached flyer for due dates. Parents, please encourage your student to wait until the librarian has verified that they have returned all of their books. It is possible that they will return a textbook, thinking it is theirs, but the bar code shows that it is checked out to someone else. That will help their friend, but they will still be responsible for their own book.
LAST DAY OF SCHOOL
Wednesday, May 30, is the last day of school for Freshmen, Sophomores, and Juniors, and it will be a regular school day. Freshmen and Sophomores must leave when they are done, but Juniors will stay on campus to help with preparations and participate in graduation.
When all of your student’s classes are finished on Wednesday and their work commitments are done, day students’ lockers are clean, dorm students’ rooms are packed up and cleaned, and they have checked out with the deans, they are free to leave. If you have any questions regarding this process, please contact the deans or this office for more information.
PARENTS OF JUNIORS & SENIORS
The graduation weekend schedule is attached. This same schedule has been sent in the mail to Junior and Senior parents. Please look it over carefully to help your student know where they need to be and when.
