SHS Weekly Newsletter #35


Dear Bowmen Community,

As you probably know, this morning our internet and phones were down.  It was completely out of our control and yet, honestly, this morning ended up being one of the best mornings we’ve had in almost a year.  Our Mixolydians did an impromptu performance for our staff and a group of teachers and staff welcomed students with a dance party and music as they came into the building.  And for a few brief moments, this morning just felt normal.  To hear laughter and music and to see the smiles (in the eyes of course because we all had masks on) was so very special and it reminded me yet again of how thankful I am for each of you.  I hope you have a wonderful, long weekend and I look forward to seeing you and experiencing a little bit of “normal” very soon!

Senior Sunset + Car Decorating

For senior sunset, Student Council wants to SURPRISE the seniors by decorating their car windows the night of June 3rd, before senior’s last day of school and senior sunset with washable window paint!

If you would like your child to participate in their car getting decorated please put down their name and home address here so student council members can decorate it for them! 

Senior Sunset will take place on June 4th to commemorate the last day of school for seniors. The sun sets at 8:45 PM, so seniors can arrive at Snyder Park any time that they would like before then.

FREE Cookie for Seniors

June 1st to June 4th, Nutrition Services invites all Seniors to come to the cafeteria during lunch time to get a FREE fresh baked chocolate chip cookie while you complete your senior check out form.

At Home Digital AP Exams Begin / Refunds

The in-person, class AP exams have been completed! Next week begins the at-home digital exams. These exams are not covered in class and my only means of communication is email so your student has been receiving and will continue to receive important emails regarding these exams.

Each student needs to do a general “digital testing setup” (once) and an additional specific exam setup for each exam. This MUST be done before exam day or they will not be able to take the exam. Everything they need is already on their school chromebook. They also have the option to download the necessary app to a different computer but it must be the computer they plan to test on. Here is a link with more detail:


The digital testing schedule is:

June 1 – AP English – exam begins at 9am.
June 2 – AP Euro/APUSH – exams begin at 9am
June 9 – AP Calc – exam begins at 9am / AP Physics 1 – exam begins at 1pm
June 10 – AP Chem – exam begins at 9am / AP Physics 2 – exam begins at 1pm
June 11 – AP Bio – exam begins at 9am

If your student is signed up for the June digital exam but is not planning on taking it, I need to know in order to issue a refund. This is especially important for seniors as the last exam is June 11th.

Feel free to contact Becky Farwell with any questions or concerns.
