Dear UCA Family,
“Flowers appear on the earth; the season of singing has come, the cooing of doves is heard in our land. The fig tree forms its early fruit; the blossoming vines spread their fragrance.” Song of Solomon 2:12-13
11 days, 22 hours, 57 minutes, 45 seconds!!!
Because we value your student’s education so much and want them to be able to complete all required school work in the time frame given and without added stress, especially as the year comes to a close, all students are required to attend all of their classes the last week of school unless there is a family emergency or specific family event. Thank you for helping your student to finish the year successfully!
LAST DAY OF SCHOOL FOR FRESHMEN AND SOPHOMORES
Wednesday, May 31, is a regular day of school for Freshmen and Sophomores.
PARENTS OF FRESHMEN & SOPHOMORES
If your student has a Junior class, they have class on Thursday, June 1. Only Freshmen and Sophomores who do not have Junior classes are free to leave after their last appointment on Wednesday, May 31. Thursday, June 1, is a regular day of school but only morning classes meet.
When all of your student’s classes are finished (on either Wednesday or Thursday), and their work commitments are done, their room is packed up and cleaned, and they have checked out with the deans, they are free to leave. If you have any questions regarding this process, please contact the deans for more information.
PARENTS OF JUNIORS & SENIORS
The graduation weekend schedule is attached. This is the same schedule that has been sent in the mail to Junior and Senior parents. Please look it over carefully to help your student know where they need to be and when.

LIVE STREAM FOR GRADUATION WEEKEND
All graduation weekend programs will be live streamed. To view, please go to www.ucaa.org/live. A link to the written program will also be on the live stream site. Please tell family and friends who want to view the weekend programming.
TEXT & LIBRARY BOOK RETURN
See the attached flyer for due dates. Parents, please encourage your student to wait until the librarian has verified that they have returned all of their books. It is possible that they will return a textbook, thinking it is theirs, but the bar code shows that it is checked out to someone else. That will help their friend, but they will still be responsible for their own book.
