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 (www.tinyurl.com/jahgrad)
