Senior Grades Are Important!

by Susie Watts
 

May 1st is the universal date set for college applicants to commit to the school they plan to attend in the fall, but that doesn't mean you don't have to prepare now. Some high school seniors believe that once they have been accepted to a college and sent in their deposit, they can relax and not worry about their grades any  longer.They begin to daydream in their classes and spend more time texting their friends than they do listening to their teachers. This is known as senioritis. Senioritis can have some serious consequences and leave students without any college plans. Or some schools might decrease their financial aid awards or put students on academic probation their first semester of college.

Most colleges request both first and second semester grades. They also expect students to take all of the courses they have listed on their college applications and to not skip classes or miss tests. While the college admissions process is almost over for high school seniors by the end of April, colleges can still rescind an acceptance based on earlier results. Colleges are sending a message that they have no problem turning down an applicant in the summer who has slacked off in his first OR second semester. They always have a wait list with students who have worked hard until graduation. It is obvious that students need to continue studying and not allow senioritis to get in the way!

Website Update

No phones

As you can tell, our website has gone through an upgrade this weekend. We hope you like the new design, and that you can still find what you're looking for! As with any update, there are still several items not working correctly, but we'll get those fixed pronto.

One of the major issues is the loss of the dropdowns under the menu items. For example, you can no longer find Home & School under the community tab. Until we get this fixed, here are several links for commonly used items from the menu flyouts. If you have any suggestions for the website, please let us know. (10/6)
