Senior Parents: Your Help Needed -- One Last Time!

You have one last opportunity to volunteer to help your Senior! The night of graduation, June 6, there will be a party at Main Event (in Fort Worth). It is a great time, and the kids have a blast. To make the night a success, we need parent volunteers to be present. We will be helping with the extra games -- nothing too demanding -- and Main Event is even providing us with our own volunteer lounge that will be stocked with snacks, caffeinated beverages and water. 


We will need parents there from right after graduation (around 11 p.m.) until about 4 a.m.  Remember, this is the last volunteer opportunity you will have for your Senior. You are helping them stay safe and have a memorable graduation night. 


Please email Molly Hyry if you are interested in helping that night.  The spots fill quickly, so first come, first served.   


Kudos to these Panthers!

Senior Amritha Gourisankar is one of this year's National Merit $2,500 Scholarship winners. Amrithais among those chosen from a talent pool of more than15,000 outstanding finalists in the 2013 NMS Program. Amritha has chosen Pediatric Neurosurgery as a possible career field. 


Students Dominic Yurk and Erik Nguyen recently took the National Chemistry Olympiad national exam, and both finished among the top 150 examinees in the U.S. They are included on the 2013 U.S. National Chemistry Olympiad Honors List.


Congratulations Amritha, Dominc and Erik!
