We joyfully celebrated the Class of 2021 at the Farm Bureau Center last June and received extremely positive feedback on last year’s ceremonies, which led to the decision to return to the Center this year as we send the Class of 2022 off with the ceremonies you deserve.

The last half of your high school experience has been anything but normal, but we are committed to honoring you to make sure you feel special, unique, and valued. We appreciate your patience and support as we finalize these plans.

With deepest gratitude,

Dr. Michael Gill, Superintendent of Schools
Mrs. Jennifer Greif, Assistant Superintendent of Instructional Leadership
Dr. Robert Staley, Director of Secondary Education
Dr. John Wheeler, Principal, Atlee High School
Mrs. Kristina Reece, Principal, Hanover High School
