We are planning for your upcoming graduation ceremony, and we are ready to hear your planned speeches. Please submit your videos to email@example.com by Friday, May 29.
Speeches should be appropriate for our graduation opening or closing and be between 2 to 5 minutes in length. Speakers must be graduating seniors from the HG Class of 2020 and be in good standing with the school in regards to grades, behavior, absences, and debts.
Again, congratulations and we can't wait to see you again.
Prepare for Senior Sprint
The Senior Sprint (virtual career fair) begins today, and it's a great opportunity for seniors who are looking for a job. Over 20 companies will be gathering virtually May 13-15 to talk with students, and some are interviewing and possibly hiring on the spot.
To help interested seniors prepare for the Senior Sprint and navigate the process, Mrs. Jewart, Career Coach, has set up some Google Meets. If one of these remaining times doesn't work for you, email firstname.lastname@example.org to set up another meeting time.
Wednesday, May 13, 4:30 pm
Thursday, May 14, 1:00 pm
*The Senior Sprint Career Fair will begin on May 13 at 9 a.m. and will end on May 15 at noon. Students will need to create an account on ASmartPlace.com to participate. For more information and a list of employers attending Senior Sprint, Click Here.
