It's that time of year again, Prom season is now among us. This Saturday, May 7th Boone Grove High School will be having their annual Junior-Senior Prom. Grand March will be held at Boone Grove High School at 4:30pm in the main gym.

It's about that time, finals are right around the corner! With that being said, if you are currently contemplating showing up to school today, go! At Boone Grove High School two final waivers are offered! These waivers can be used in any class (excluding AP courses) in which you hold a C- or higher. The only way you can receive these waivers is if you meet certain criteria: you must have only missed two days or less with no unexcused absences. So if you are laying in bed contemplating whether to get up or not, get up! No matter how bad the senioritis may be, it's worth it, believe me!

With finals and graduation coming up the Boone Grove school year is coming to an end. Boone Grove's class of 2016 is looking forward to starting a new chapter in their lives, beginning Sunday, June 5th, at Boone Grove's 2016 graduation ceremony held at Boone Grove High School. As a part of the Class of 2016 I would like to thank all of the teachers for their dedication and determination put in every day here at Boone Grove High School, thank you.

Boone Grove's math teacher, Katelyn Sarnwoski, is not only an amazing teacher, yet she is also the Boone Grove Wolves tennis coach! We would like to congratulate and recognize Mrs. Sarnowski for all the hard work and time she dedicates to the students at Boone Grove High School. While balancing a heavy workload, teaching multiple math courses, and balancing the Wolves tennis schedule Mrs. Sarnowski, all while expecting a beautiful baby boy this June, manages to make it look easy! We would like to thank Mrs. Sarnowski for yet another wonderful year.

Boone Grove's very own senior, Austin Rocha, will be attending Indiana University's Business School of Kelley this fall. Austin is salutatorian for Boone Grove's senior class of 2016, however, not only is Austin a stellar scholar, but he is also Boone Grove's National Honors Society and Class president. Not only is Austin known for his intelligence, but also his uplifting personality. Austin was very involved at Boone Grove, being that he was on countless committees, a team captain, you name it! I believe I speak for the entire student body when I say that everyone is familiar with him. Austin knew how to make everyone feel welcome and accepted. We would like to thank Austin for such an amazing time here at Boone Grove and we would also like to wish him luck in all his future endeavors.
