2023 Laurels Recognition Night
Our annual Laurels Night is scheduled for May 25, 2023. What is Laurels Night?
Laurels Night is an event with a dual purpose. The first is to recognize seniors who have earned scholarships for post-secondary education. We invite community groups such as the Kiwanis, the Rotary, and others to come that night to officially present their scholarship awards.
The second purpose is to celebrate our Seniors’ academic successes. On Laurels Night, we present medals to our valedictorians and salutatorians, awards to our “Top-10” students, and stoles to class and ASB officers.
To be honored at Laurels Night is a reward for hard work! If you have been awarded a scholarship let us know by bringing a copy of your award letter to the Guidance office or emailing it to Ms. Greene at email@example.com
Do you have a plan for next year? Let us and your fellow students know what it is!
We want to recognize the many paths our seniors will take after graduation. If you have been accepted to a college, university, trade school, community college, or other training program, we want to know! If you are enlisting in the military, we want to know! If you are going into the workforce, we want to know!
Come by the Guidance Office to fill out your Game of Life Car and we will put it in the hallway display case.

Transcript Requests and Graduation Verification Requests
South Kitsap School District partners with an online service called Parchment.
Many colleges, universities, and employers across the country are already part of the Parchment network. This online process sends your transcript quickly and securely to the destination of your choice (college, employers, etc.)
This service is for all transcript requests, official or unofficial, current students or alumni.
**If you are a parent/guardian requesting on behalf of your student, please use the student's information when filling out the registration.**
Do you know where you’ll be sending your transcript when your final grades are in?
If the answer is yes, then place your order now. Your transcript won’t be sent until your final grades are on it. Why wait?
Still have questions? Email SKHSRegistrar@skschools.org.
