** Letter from the Vertical and Mrs. Bourquin

Hello Seniors, Senior Parents, and Guardians!


First off, a huge congratulations to the class of 2017. High school graduation is a tremendous step towards forward and a major turning point for so many of our Nease students. The Nease Vertical, our school newspaper, has been honored to grow alongside many of our seniors and document their stories along the way.


As a final congratulations to the class of 2017, the Nease Vertical would like to offer a “Shout-out” and “Remember-when” section of our final issue of the year, dedicated to the seniors. Each student has the opportunity to “shout-out” to a family member, close friend, favorite teacher, or whoever they want! The “remember-when’s” serve a similar purpose, except these are to highlight a specific memory the student cherishes from their time here at Nease.


Each “Shout-out” or “remember-when” can be up to 140 characters, just like a tweet, and will cost $1. For an additional dollar, the students may participate in our photo booth. The photo booth will be held in front of the PAC during both Power hour A and B and there will be graduation-themed props. All “shout-outs”, “remember when’s” and photos (pending review) will be printed in the senior edition of The Vertical, and when purchasing them there is an option to receive a digital copy of your photos!


To purchase a “shout out,” “remember when,” or participate in the photo booth students should visit our table in front of the PAC this Friday, April 21, 2017.


Finally, for this issue of The Vertical we are doing a Panther on the Prowl spread which includes senior’s transformations from their baby pictures (1st grade or younger would be preferable) to their last year as high school students! To submit your photos email the [email protected]. This email can also contacted concerning any questions about our previous offer.
