12th Grade

Class of 2024

Congratulations! We are excited to work with you this year as you move towards graduation. It's very important to us that all of our Seniors have a plan for what they will do after graduation, whether that be pursuing further education, joining the military, or heading out into the workforce.

Check this page often!  We'll post copies of presentations and share important information and opportunities. Join Remind, follow us on Instagram (@heritagehsstudentservices) and Twitter (@huskycounselors), and check the calendar on our Heritage Student Services home page.

The Senior Conference

In September 2023, all counselors will conduct individual meetings with senior students.  The purpose of the senior conference is to verify appropriate senior courses that will lead to a high school diploma, to provide post high school planning support, and answer specific questions. This is a brief “let’s get started” meeting and seniors are expected to schedule follow up meetings with their counselors as needed. What should a senior do prior to the senior meeting?

After the meeting, students should share the Senior Meeting Handout and Graduation Planning Form with family and those supporting their post-graduation plans.

On Tuesday, October 10, Seniors will participate in this event, designed to help students gain knowledge and access to skills and resources needed to solidify their post-graduation plans.
