Calling all Seniors: HOPE Scholarship
Here is an important HOPE rigor reminder that if students are pursuing the HOPE Scholarship, please check this HOPE Rigor List to make sure you will have at least 4 of these courses by the end of your senior year!
All seniors should be working on their "Brag Sheet" so that your counselors and teachers can use the information if you request a letter of recommendation. You can access the Brag Sheet template in your Counseling Schoology account - be sure to "make a copy" first! https://docs.google.com/document/d/1OMbIo6XVmNotgCnqTCgq4iEg9TIqF2EoAAO3FYqbjGM/edit
