CLASS OF 2020

SENIOR INFORMATION – DISTANCE LEARNING EDITION

As we all navigate this change in our year we’ll be utilizing this page to share important senior-related information. As the current state is to anticipate a return to school on May 1st we will still try to incorporate as many senior activities as possible before year’s end. For that reason we will not officially cancel any event until we have to – for that reason we will still count on senior fees and will not be issuing any refunds at this time.

Locker Pick Up: May 21st ONLY

We will use the sign-up genius below for student locker pick up. You may only sign up if you have a locker assigned to you. Please park in the student parking lot and enter through the gate near media. You will have 10 minutes to clear out your locker and may not bring any additional people with you on this day. Your parent will need to wait in the car to limit the number of people in each area and adhere to CDC guidelines. We encourage all to wear a mask while on campus and check in with the adults at the gate as you enter. We will verify your appointment time and your locker number at the gate.  You may not exit your car until your specified appointment and we ask that each student who signs up for a time slot behave responsibly while on campus.

If you prefer, we can clean out your locker and discard materials for you. Please specify that on the form.

THOUGHTS FROM MRS. PETERSON – Scholarships, Bright Futures & More

Seniors:  I wish your senior year didn’t have to be like this, but we will all do whatever we can to help you through this last part of the year.  You still have your plans for next year-your acceptances, your goals, and there is still work to be done!  So, here we go with information you need to know from me. Keep up with your classes and get help if you are not comfortable with online classes.  This is new to so many of us, and there is help out there, so please ask for it.  Stay in touch with your teachers, and stay in touch with ME!!

There are a few pressing topics that I want to address now, and I will be getting out new info as I receive it on both of these topics.

First, scholarships!!  There is still time to earn more scholarships.  I have been contacting all of our local scholarship donors and most have extended their deadlines.  I don’t know what the status of our scholarship night is, but we will certainly celebrate your scholarships earned!  VISIT THE UPDATED SCHOLARSHIP PAGE NOW!

Second, Bright Futures. I have a list from Bright Futures of who was eligible after grades were locked (after 1st semester) and who was not.  I will be contacting each of you individually if you are a student who could still qualify IF you ______________________.  Fill in the blank as to why you didn’t.  You can all make this easier if you go on to the BF site and check your own status. It should explain why you did not qualify. Remember, the June SAT and ACT tests are still on the calendar to happen. Those scores CAN be used for BF qualification.  You can still turn in community service hours that you’ve been hanging on to (to me or Mrs. Sawyer). And some of you can still possibly get the GPA if you work hard in your classes online! If you have questions, you can call the help number on the BF site, or email or call me.

Lastly, if you have questions about PHSC or Marchman, if that was your plan (or it was your backup and now has become your plan) try emailing someone at both of those schools to get the best information.  If you don’t have any luck, email me and I’ll see if I can get the information for you. Also, I have the list from PHSC of the Top 10% of your graduating class.  If you are in the top 10% and money is now an issue for you, or PHSC has been your plan all along, remember, you can get your AA for almost nothing.  Your tuition is FREE.

Sending good vibes your way,

Mrs. Peterson
