Dear Senior Parents,
Fourth quarter is here, and exams will be upon us before we know it. Please check the Moeller calendar online to keep up with all the events and happenings. Between Prom (April 26), the Environmental Symposium (April 15), spring sports, concerts, choral performances, the musical (May 10-12/Little Shop of Horrors
), and many other events and activities, it is imperative that the Men of Moeller stay on top of their grades in light of our busy schedule.
Advanced Placement testing will be during the weeks of May 6-16. This schedule is set by the College Board and is not flexible in any way. A more specific schedule of tests will be coming out in the next few weeks. In the meantime, if you need to know the testing schedule, consult either the AP Bulletin that was passed out to all the AP classes during the past two weeks or go online to the College Board website to see the day that your son’s test(s) will be administered.
Any missed exams cannot be made up during these two weeks. Any student who misses a test will have to make it up during the scheduled make-up week set by the College Board. Since there are also final exams going on these two weeks of AP testing, please do everything you can to clear these days on your calendars to avoid any unnecessary absences. We will be accepting any last-minute AP orders on Monday, March 25. After that date, we will be placing our order for AP tests. If there are any orders submitted after Monday, there will be an additional $13 fee assessed by the College Board. The Environmental Symposium is right around the corner on April 15.
Our symposium will be begin at approximately 12:45 PM and continue until the end of the school day. Please feel free to come and see our students, teachers, and outside speakers present this day on a variety of environmental topics.
As always, thank you for all that you do for the Moeller community!

IN THE NEWS: Moeller Senior Patrick Benson Rescues Surfer in Trouble
March 31, 2013 | By Juan Diasgranados
SINGER ISLAND, Fla. - A heroic teenager on vacation rescued an exhausted surfer who got caught in a rip current and carried out to sea Sunday afternoon near the Marriott Hotel in Singer Island. As the drama of the surfer unfolded, nearby a search by air and water was going on for a 6-year-old boy who was missing and feared to be in danger of drowning, said a Palm Beach County lifeguard. “There was a couple women out there, they were in tears, one was giving a blessing, because we saved that man’s life,” said Patrick Benson, the Cincinnati lifeguard who jumped in the cold water to rescue the surfer. “It’s an emotional high, but you just have to take it in stride because yes, I saved his life, but I’m not better than anyone else,” Benson said. The male surfer was rushed to St. Mary’s Medical Center in a unknown condition. He is expected to survive, according to the lifeguards on scene. Meanwhile, the child was found safe and dry and returned to his parents.

IN THE NEWS: Moeller Senior Uses Lifeguarding Skills to Save Life
April 12, 2013 | Leah Fightmaster, The Community Press
When most people go on vacation, they get a break from work. For Moeller senior Patrick Benson, it followed him there. While vacationing in West Palm Beach, Fla. last month, Benson, a Reading resident, was meeting some friends. At the beach, Coast Guard helicopters and boats were searching for a 6-year-old boy believed to be in danger of drowning. Benson saw a man in the ocean waving to the Coast Guard, which he found strange because of the serious situation. After the man continued to wave for about a minute, he realized he was likely in trouble. READ MORE
