Senior Parent/Guardian Letter
Posted on 04/05/2021
Dear Parents and Guardians of Seniors,

It has certainly been an eventful almost few years and seems like only yesterday that your children arrived here for the First Adventure orientation day at the beginning of ninth grade. The Associate Principals and I will be meeting with the senior class during ACA on April 14th (Google Meets by House) to let them know how much we value the occasion and to let them know what our expectations are. We will also update them on plans for the Senior Prom at Longfellow's Wayside Inn. We will stress to seniors that the end of high school can be joyous and fun, and this should be balanced with an eye toward sensibility and safety.

Graduation will take place on the campus of Lincoln-Sudbury at 2 pm on Sunday, June 6th (with rain date, if needed, on Saturday, June 5th). We hope that the timing of the afternoon ceremony will enable out-of-town families to be part of the celebration. Every graduate will be allowed to invite a maximum of six guests, and guests must register in advance. (Additional details will be shared soon.)

Please note that important dates for graduating seniors are listed at the link: “2021 Senior Calendar of Events” and on our website under “School Calendar.” There will be a Q&A Google Meet session for all parents/guardians of seniors on Wednesday, April 28th at 7:00 p.m. Class advisors will be present to answer questions you may have. Prior to this session you will receive a narrated screencast with details about graduation, senior events, and obligations. If you have questions after the meeting, please contact any one of the class advisors: Leslie Patterson, Ariel Cox, and Kristen Ehrler.

The annual Senior Day of Service will be Tuesday, June 1st. The tradition provides the opportunity for the class of 2021 to give back to the communities that have given so much to them over the years. Senior Day of Service fulfills the 12th grade Wellness requirement, so all seniors are expected to participate. This graduating class has the potential to leave a lasting legacy by collectively providing over 1500 hours of community service in just one day. More information on the volunteer opportunities available for Senior Day of Service will be issued by the MLK Office in future weeks. There will be opportunities for both preset service projects and student-created (pre-approved) sessions.

Throughout their years at Lincoln-Sudbury, this graduating class has been a wonderful group with which to work. The timing and impact of factors related to the pandemic affecting the final year of this graduating class has been especially challenging to withstand. Students have demonstrated tremendous resilience and positivity throughout. I am proud of our seniors and know they will go forth and represent us well. If at any point I can be of assistance, please do not hesitate to speak with me.

Sincerely,

Bella T. Wong

Superintendent/Principal
