Senior Boards Judges needed!

We are seeking community members to judge Senior Boards, an afternoon of Senior Capstone Project presentations. This event is a significant milestone for our seniors, and we need your help to ensure its success.

We hope you will be able to join us on Tuesday, December 10, from 1:30-4 p.m. This time will include training on the rubric, refreshments, and judging approximately six presentations. You will receive training on the expectations at 1:30 p.m. and will judge presentations until approximately 4 p.m. The students are not doing blogs this year, so your time commitment will be limited to the time you are here to receive training and to see presentations.

If you judged our early Senior Boards in October, we would love to have you judge again in December. You will NOT have to attend the training again, but please be here by 2 p.m. for refreshments and room assignments.

We really need and appreciate your help in making Senior Boards a meaningful experience for our seniors. Thanks to all of you who come to help year after year, and we look forward to welcoming new faces this year!
