Attention seniors: end-of-year business

I.  Senior Surveys:  Every senior is required to complete a senior survey. This will give students the opportunity to let us know of their post high school plans. This information will be displayed in the school’s front display case and announced at graduation.

II.  Scholarship/Award Announcements:  All seniors, who received any scholarships/awards/grants should bring a copy of their award letter to Mrs. Davis in the College Guidance Office (108).  All scholarships/awards will be announced at graduation.

III.  Final Transcripts:  Every senior who plans to attend a two or four year college/program/military needs to bring in a stamped (44 cents) envelope, addressed to the school/program of their choice, so that a final transcript can be sent at the end of the year.  Failure to comply with this request may delay your admission to the school.  Envelopes should be dropped off in room 108.  In addition, athletes who plan to play a DI or DII sport must also submit a request for a final transcript to be sent to the NCAA Eligibility Center.
