Welcome back, students! I hope that everyone had a lovely spring break.
We are starting to get into the busiest time of the year, with AP tests and Regents rapidly approaching, along with many more school activities.
The Junior Prom is on May 3, and many students are making their last preparations and adjustments for their big night. We wish you all the best and hope you all have a great time.
Mark May 17 on your calendars, as this will be the annual G. Ray Bodley Spring Clean-Up. Students can come to the high school at 9 a.m. (it’s for a good cause, you can get up!) to help plant flowers and clean up the grounds.
It is a lot of work but it always a lot of fun and is very rewarding. Those who stay the whole time are given pizza at the end!
The Spring Clean-Up can also be used for community service hours, so National Honor Society students should take note!
Our Bodley’s Got Talent show was an enormous success and raised $2,000 for charity. Congratulations to the first place winner, MyKenzie Finch, and to all those who participated. We admire your bravery!
On April 28, the class of 2017 will be holding a fundraiser at the local restaurant Blue Moon. A total of 10 percent of the proceeds from all purchases will go towards 2017 funding for prom and other expenses.
Class members will also be selling Raider apparel to help raise money. Please support our freshman class!
Much is happening in sports action this week. The varsity and JV girls’ lacrosse teams will face Oswego this Saturday at home at 1 and 2:30 p.m., respectively.
The varsity softball team hosts Christian Brothers Academy tomorrow at 4:30 p.m., as does varsity boys’ baseball. Boys’ lacrosse faces New Hartford on the home turf Friday, at 5 and 7 p.m., respectively.
Please try to make it to one of these events, your support is always greatly appreciated.
