All across America, millions of high school seniors celebrate Decision Day on May 1. This year the eight Fishers Island School seniors are part of that enormous group of peers. FI School Counselor Julie Arcelus and Principal Christian Arsenault hosted a special celebration, “To acknowledge the important choice that each FIS senior is making regarding their plans after high school”, said Julie.

At lunchtime, the whole student body with their teachers, many dressed in ‘swag’ from their own alma maters, gathered in the gym. The seniors were each presented with a pennant from their college and then shared their plans and the subject of their intended major or areas of concentration.

Mr. Arsenault also reminded everyone that it is each and every teacher, staff member, and adult that has helped guide and support the students along their individual journey to this exciting time.

Congratulations to everyone!
