SENIORS & DIPLOMAS
You may pick-up your diplomas on Wednesday directly from your Supervising Teacher in their classrooms before 1:00pm.


SENIORS: KEEP A POST HIGH SCHOOL FILE
It is VERY important for students to start building their college file box. Keep all future enrollment papers, make copies of everything and keep them safe, keep extra (unopened/sealed) transcripts for future use (you will need at least 4 sealed high school transcripts on hand over the next 6 years), make copies of your High School Diploma (don't loose this important document. Many employers, organizations and private colleges ask for a copy) save all financial aid correspondence. Once you begin acquiring college transcripts, keep these in your file box. There is a cost for replacements. It is wise for parents to have a duplicate file box if the student is moving away. Boxes tend to get lost in big moves! These are materials that you will need easy access to, from the time you graduate from high school, register for college, or until you become fully employed.


MOVING? TRANSFERRING?
I
f your student will not be returning to CRHS for the 2015-16 school year, start now filling out your transcript request form, noting where you wish for your teen's transcript should be mailed to. Request two copies. One for your records and one sealed to the next school.
