Ready for Senior Activities
March 9, 2018
Welcome to senior year! The culminating year here at Ditmas I.S. 62 is full of exciting activities and opportunities for your graduate. Although the majority of these activities take place at the end of the year, we wanted to reach out to parents and let them know what will be taking place as the year progresses.
Below please find a letter inlcuding a list of the activities and events we have planned, their costs, dates, and locations. Please note that all activities are optional. Your child may participate in as many or as few events as you choose. Also, please be advised that all events are considered to be a privilege. Your child may be excluded from any and all events due to poor behavior, grades or excessive absences. In addition, 8th grade activities are open to graduates only, meaning, if your child is in danger of failing, or they have not paid Senior Dues, they may not be eligible to participate in senior activities. If your child is excluded from any activities due to the reasons mentioned above, you will be notified in a timely manner.
Please be advised that at this time, Senior Dues are past due. No payments for senior activities are due at this time. More information regarding each event will be sent home as the year progresses. As always, if you have any further questions or concerns please feel free to contact your Dean of Students.
Your Principal, Mr. Kevorkian
