GRADUATION PROJECT UPDATE
All freshmen, sophomores, and juniors have been assigned an Everfi project – students, please check your email for instructions. Stay current with your Graduation Project by checking your status in Naviance.
Seniors – notices were provided to all seniors who still owe one or more elements of the Graduation Project. A reminder that the grade for the Graduation Project will appear on the second marking period report card – it will reflect a P or a F (pass or fail), as the Graduation Project is worth 0.25 credit. Students who receive an F (failure) will still be able to meet the Graduation Project requirements, but as it is a graduation requirement, all elements must be completed prior to graduation.

The Senior High has PRIDE!
The P.R.I.D.E. Program is a character education framework which teaches and instills the virtues of being Personable, being Respectful, having Integrity, being Dependable, and being Engaged in both the school and community.
At the Senior High, not only are staff able to recognize student achievements; but also our students may recognize the good in other students or staff members. Through our online form, we are able to promote the good throughout our school and show each other the PRIDE the Senior High brings each day. The form can be accessed at: http://tinyurl.com/priderecognition or by using the QR code below.
