1 November Announcements

     Seniors, keep your eyes peeled during lunch for the Jostens table. They will be taking orders for your Cap & Gown and other graduation items. Remember, you must purchase a cap & gown package to participate in graduation in May. Don’t wait. Email Mrs. Sheilah Thomas if you have questions about senior items. 


     Approval for work hours to count towards the Bright Futures Scholarship is now ready! Students must first register for approval of their work or Community service site. Once students register and receive email approval, they may log back into their accounts and print their work or community service hour log sheets. 

  • Please remember that work hours cannot be combined with service hours, they must be submitted separately.  
  • If students need any help with registering or printing, they may stop by the Student Success Center.
