Prior to the start of the 2021-2022 academic year, students are required to complete summer assignments based on the grade they are entering and the classes they are taking. Every grade has required summer reading assignments, but students should be aware of their schedules for next year and complete any assignments for classes that they will be entering in the Fall.

An important year-end tradition is our annual Athletic Banquet that celebrates all of our Husky athletes who participated in sports teams throughout the year. Although this year altered the landscape significantly, many upper school teams were still able to compete and train with shortened seasons as restrictions were lifted. We are immensely proud of the perseverance and grit our Husky athletes demonstrated this year and we look forward to highlighting their accomplishments and commitment to their teams!
