Well, this is it! The last month of school, and we hope that you are focusing on FINISHING STRONG and STAYING GOLDEN! Admin, Counselors and Teachers have been working hard on preparing a memory-filled graduation for our seniors. There is some important information below that includes a Senior Timeline and information parents and students will want to know. In order for seniors to be cleared for graduation, they need to make sure they have all of their credit, Civics Test passed, Senior Survey taken and all chromebooks and textbooks handed in.
