Senior Important news for graduation

Seniors and Parents/Guardians: 2nd semester will be filled with important news for seniors, including graduation information. Because of our hybrid model, we will be relying heavily on the class of 2021 Google Classroom. Please make sure your student has joined the Classroom and has “Notifications” turned ON.

In the next few weeks, your student should be scheduling a graduation meeting with Mrs. Skvarch. A link to set up the meeting is posted in the Google Classroom. This meeting is to make sure all graduation tasks are complete, such as credit checks and post-secondary plans.  Students can access Mrs. Skvarch’s calendar to schedule an appointment by clicking on the link below:

College App and Bullying Prevention

College App information and bullying prevention!!

Our students are preparing to apply to their dream schools, but they have to do it in the middle of a pandemic. Talk about stress!

We want to help support them, so we’re including a special segment in our upcoming October Student Voices Webinar featuring Harvard sophomore and #ICANHELP Content Intern Jordan Sanchez.

Jordan is a rising star who is not only on top of her college game, but has a book deal, a successful YouTube channel on college life, and a TikTok following of 50K+ with whom she shares school and life advice.

During the webinar, she’ll give tips for what seniors should put on their applications, how underclassmen can prepare for college applications, and share advice on how educators can support their students with the application process.
