WEEK AHEAD: Summer is coming; Green Wave academics; meeting schedule

It’s the last full week before the Memorial Day weekend descends upon us. It’s also the last full school week for Abington High’s Class of 2023; their final day is Thursday, May 25. Then it’s Memorial Day Weekend. Graduation is June 3. Founder’s Day Weekend is the following weekend. And then the final day of school for everyone is June 14.

Grocery stores have already started sprinkling a red, white, and blue palette into their displays. The warm weather seltzer flavors are out. What we’re trying to say is that we’re on the fast track to summer.

Enjoy the weather.
