We have made our way to all senior classrooms, reiterating announcements regarding graduation, scholarship/application recommendations, attendence, credit recovery, etc. The Ed White counselors are now focusing efforts on updating 10th grade ePEPs and will then look to visiting 9th grade classrooms...see you all soon...

If you are a provisional senior (an "11th" grader who entered high school in the fall of 2005) and you are trying to graduate at the end of this year, you should have signed one. The counselors were outside of the cafeteria for four days last month and we have been in our offices ever since! With or without your signature, your credit check was mailed home (and we kept a copy, so don't try to pull any tricks). :)
...and your parents know! So don't try to beat your parents to the mail and intercept it. They WILL see your grades eventually and if not, they WILL find out that/if you failed all year. So be mature, fess up and turn over a new leaf. See your teacher about grade recovery if you need to. At the end of the semester, look into credit recovery through ALC. See your counselor if you have questions.

Hello all! We are working our best to balance classes and correct schedules. Please be patient. Also, if you need any information regarding the ACT or SAT see the menu to the right or come see us. The testing corporations prefer that you register online, so please do so. See registrations deadlines to the right as well (you can register past the deadline, but you'll have to pay a late fee).
