Senior Cougar Chatter

May 6, 2021

RUMOR ALERT: "I don't NEED to pass ALL my class in order to graduate" THIS IS NOT TRUE!!

This is a FALSE statement! Seniors MUST pass ALL Required classes with a grade average of 70 or above for both Semester 1 and Semester 2.

RUMOR ALERT: "Attendance DOES NOT count this year"

Seniors,


The 90% rule is still in effect this year. Assistant Principals will make a plan with students who fall below the 90% rule.


Turning in your work and having a grade average of 70 or above is the primary goal.


Reach out to your counselors, Amy Rogers, Michael Quintana, or your assistant principal, Cynthia Julian for support.

Seniors!


We are getting close to graduation, and we are so proud of the Class of 2021!

This has been a challenging year and we are excited to start celebrating with you! Please look below for details on the upcoming events and start planning to have some fun! Make sure that you are passing all your classes needed for graduation (all core and needed electives). If you have any questions about which classes are needed for graduation, please reach out to your counselor (Michael Quintana or Amy Rogers) or your Assistant Principal (Cynthia Julian).


Congratulations Class of 2021! Get ready to walk across that stage!!!!

Are you bringing a Prom date?!

Seniors who are planning to bring a date to the prom that does not attend Crockett MUST fill out the Prom Date Information Form. I have requested that this form be put on BLEND, but until that happens, I am sharing the form with you to share with your Seniors if you get a chance.

Seniors we need your Chromebooks!


Your Chromebooks, Chargers, and Hotspots will need to be returned after you have completed all of your schoolwork for the year. We need these devices for incoming Freshmen in the fall! Please be diligent about returning the devices no matter what condition they are in so as not to complicate your graduation plans or to have yourself placed on an obligations list. We are planning to make the afternoon of Friday, May 28th available for you to return your device easily but feel free to return them early to Mr. Morgan in Room 201 or to Ms. Snyder in the counselor’s office if you are able.
