The 12th grade is engaged in a pivotal main lesson: Developing a World View: Ideas and Consciousness. In this class with Ms. Delaney, they explore questions such as, "What is a modern person?" "What do I believe?" "What do I know?" "Who am I?" From ancient times to the present, cultures and individuals have struggled to answer the perennial questions that help define the nature of the human being and our relationship to the world and to the spirit. In this survey course, seniors are reviewing the ideas of the past, exploring those of the present and looking to the possibilities of the future.
Looking to the possibilities of the future is just what the seniors will be doing after this main lesson block as they begin their 3-week Internships on March 10th. They will be joining the work environment in places such as non-profits, schools, businesses and health facilities. Seniors will make presentations about their Internship experience to parents and friends on Thursday, April 3rd, at 7:00 pm.
After their Internships, they will be involved in rehearsals for the all-school musical, Grease.During their last two weeks of their high school career they will have a two week interdisciplinary main lesson block led by Mr. Claus.
Seniors also look forward to their last high school prom (May 10th), senior outings and other ceremonies before their graduation. The commencement ceremony will be held June 8th, at 1:30 pm, at The Scottish Rite Masonic Museum and Library, Inc. (formerly The National Heritage Museum), 33 Marrett St. in Lexington.
