Class of 2017:
The final days of senior year are quickly approaching. This email is to inform you about final deadlines and final exams.
Senior Final Papers can be due May 10-17. There will not be a "no testing time period" for seniors but once a final experience is completed classwork can be given and graded but further homework (work to complete, additional reading, preparation for a quiz or test) should not be assigned. This will allow students time to work on other presentations, projects and prepare for final exams.
Senior Final Exam days will be May 22, 23 & 24. A final exam experience for seniors needs to occur on one of these days. Seniors need to be present in class May 22, 23, 24 only for final presentations, review days or final exams/papers. This will be determined by the classroom teacher. Seniors will be able to come and go as they please but must enter and exit the Reception Area doors after school begins at 8:20. Some sample scenarios: 1) A senior could have a review day on Monday, and the exam given on Wednesday and therefore would only be expected in class on Monday, May 22 and Wednesday, May 24, 2) A paper could be turned in May 11 and not need to attend class May 22-24 since the final experience is complete, 3) Final presentations are held May 22-24 and all students are expected to be in class all days to present or critique other student presentations, 4) A final exam is given May 23 and students attend May 22 for a review and do not attend on May 24.
Please note: If a final paper is due on one of the exam days the paper will be accepted between 8:00am-2:30pm on that day. It needs to be handed to the individual classroom teacher.
ALL SENIORS ARE EXPECTED TO BE IN ATTENDANCE ON THURSDAY, MAY 25 FOR MERCY DAY OF CELEBRATION. THIS DAY IS TO CELEBRATE YOU - THE CLASS OF 2017. SENIORS MUST BE IN ATTENDANCE AT HONORS CONVOCATION IN ORDER TO PARTICIPATE IN SENIOR PARTIES AND MOVING UP.
All seniors who have submitted scholarship information to Naviance or have earned awards will be called to the stage at Honors Convocation. An email will be sent to inform you if you will be honored. All students who have earned a 3.75 cumulative grade point average after 7 semesters will receive Phi Beta Kappa honors and will be seated on the stage. Please check your 2016-17 Semester 1 report card on PowerSchool to verify your current Cumulative GPA. 8th semester grades will not be factored in since certificates and medals need to be ordered and programs produced. Full cap and gown with tassel is needed to process in and walk across the stage. This year we are honoring a classmates request to read the college you will be attending in the fall along with your awards. You will be given an opportunity to opt out of this announcement. You will receive a follow up email with a link to the opt out form. Opt out requests are due by Friday, May 12.
Senior Final Grades are due by Wednesday, May 31 at 9am. Transcripts will be sent to the college designated on the Senior Survey on Monday, June 5, 2017.
