You can enter your hours on the website and then turn in a Service Hours Validation form that is available in both the guidance office and the main office, as well as online, which requires you to fill out where and with whom you completed your community service hours and the tasks performed for community service.

SENIOR BEHAVIOR
Seniors are expected to conduct themselves according to the same rules of behavior required for other students. The school will take appropriate measures regarding disruptive behavior and pranks, which interfere with the normal school routine. We ask for your cooperation in helping end the year in an orderly and appropriate manner. We hope no students choose to disappoint family and friends by unwise actions, which result in their exclusion from end of the year ceremonies as part of the required disciplinary measures. All graduating seniors are held to the highest behavior expectations. Any inappropriate behavior between now and graduation will be handled according to the conduct policy in the student handbook, including exclusion from the graduation ceremony. A blank diploma will be given to any graduate who exhibits any inappropriate behavior during the graduation ceremony.

SENIOR FEES
ALL fees must be paid in full by Friday, May 12th, at 2:15 pm. Seniors who do not pay their fees will not participate in the graduation ceremony and will not receive their diploma! Check with the main office to see if you have any remaining balance.

SENIOR BREAKFAST
Senior Breakfast will be Monday, May 22nd, at 11:00am in the high school cafeteria. Seniors will pick up their caps and gowns during the senior breakfast and they will have their composite pictures taken in their cap and gown immediately following breakfast.

SENIOR TRIP
Senior Trip will be Thursday, May 25th to Cedar Point. More details to come.
