Seniors – Please be sure to fill out the Senior Scholarship Summary form now available in the guidance office, it has also been sent in the senior mailing you will be receiving this week.

Please list any and all scholarships and grants you have been offered – not just the ones you are accepting.  Those will be listed with your name in the Graduation Commencement Booklet.  Please also let us know the amount of each scholarship or grant and if it renewable or a one time award.  The monetary information is kept private, we only use that to get a total count of how much our senior class has been offered.  We need these turned in to Mrs. Roy by today.

See Mrs.  Roy in the Guidance Office with any questions.

Attention sophomores who are signed up for Ms. Alfonsi’s AP English Language and Comp class for next year:  we will meet on Thursday, May 9 (that’s this week!) during tutorial in the Performing Arts Center to go over summer work expectations.  Please see Ms. Alfonsi in room 315 if you have a conflict.

And now for whats the T and Patty G

In the NHL Playoffs the Big Bad Bruins have taken a 3-2 series lead and the Carolina Hurricanes completed their first series sweep in team history against the New York Islanders on Friday. In the NBA Playoffs the Warriors have a 2-1 lead over the Rockets and the Nuggets and Trail Blazers are tied at two apiece.

It looked like it was all over for the Brave Lacrosse team, with 30 seconds left and the score tied at 10 Cincinnati Country Day was on the fast break.  When Trent Rumpler made an interception and moved it upfield to Grady Holmes where he put it in the back of the cage with 2.2 seconds left to win it for the Brave and secure their Home field advantage in Regionals next Monday vs. LaSalle.  The Brave play at Home on Senior Night Friday vs. Xenia.

Home games for today: Boys JV Baseball hosts Franklin at 5, and we wish luck to the Track teams who will be competing at the conference meet tomorrow at Edgewood. Action begins there at 4:15.

And that’s our broadcast on this Monday. I’m not Patrick Geshan. Thanks so much for watching, and we’ll see you tomorrow.
