GEARING UP FOR SENIOR EXIT INTERVIEWS
Do not forget that the Graduation Project has changed to Senior Exit Interviews. Community service hours are still the project, but students will present about skills gained from those experiences and also anything else they've done in high school working towards their goals post high school. This can include sports, clubs, leadership experiences, jobs, etc. Community judges will then ask students interview questions. See the document below for detailed information and a link to the handbook!

Graduation Project Parent Information Sheet



CHROMEBOOKS FALL 2017:

Parents of Freshmen and new students will need to come to the Media Center to fill out a form and pay the $25 user fee. At that time, Mrs. Briggs, our Media Coordinator will issue a Chromebook to your student.

Parents of students who turned their Chromebooks in last year will need to pay the $25 user fee to have the Chromebook re-issued to their student.


Parents of students who kept their Chromebooks will need to pay the $25 user fee. If not paid, this fee will go on your child’s “items owed”. If your child has had an issue with his/her Chromebook over the summer this needs to be reported ASAP. Mrs. Briggs can not guarantee, however, that a replacement Chromebook will be available right away.


The user fee can be paid in person in the Media Center or online at mypaymentsplus.com.
