Graduation Requirements, College Applications and FAFSA Questions

If you are concerned about whether you (or your student is) are on track for graduation, please do not hesitate to reach out to Mrs. Evans, the Class of 2022 counselor. There are four weeks remaining in your senior year. Now is the time to really focus and make sure you have everything on track to be ready to walk across the stage on June 3!

If you have not yet applied for your next steps in life, whether that is college, community college, a technical program, or the is not too late. Set up a time with Mrs. Evans to talk through options and opportunities. If you need some guidance on applying for financial aid, Mrs. Evans is a wealth of knowledge on how to go about completing this application.

Be Safe.. You are Important to Us


We know you heard us say this at our class meeting, but it is worth repeating. The last few weeks of your senior year are going to be a whirlwind of activity. There are going to be many opportunities to have fun with your friends, celebrate your accomplishments, and relish in reaching this life milestone. You are on the threshold of the rest of your life and we are so excited for you.

However, this is often the time of year when we worry about your safety the most. You have so very much to look forward to. You are so important to those around you.

Have fun. Be safe. Make good choices. Take care of each other.
