It’s March, back to Senior Walk
March 26, 2019
It’s been a while since I last posted, but on a brighter note we are down to double digits on the countdown to graduation. Only 60 days. Hang in there seniors — the end is almost here!
There are a few reminders and to-do’s seniors should be completing as we wait for May to arrive. Here are all the tasks that need done over the next few weeks.
“Keep checking Remind, Group Me, emails, and make sure you pay your senior dues,” Senior Class Secretary Ashley Fukuyama said.
Scholarship and college application season is just about wrapped up, so it’s time for final college selections. Over the next few weeks make sure you know what your plans for next fall are and have all FAFSA and other scholarship information sent over to your college by their specific deadline. Also the period to pick up your final transcripts will be May 1-6, so get down to the guidance office by then.
Wanting to advertise your graduation? Well with senior yard signs and neighborhood signs, you can! Ignoring my terrible sales pitch, the class of 2019 has entered the last days to get senior yard signs. They are $40 and must be turned in by April 15. Neighborhood signs should be done by your homeowners association, so be looking for emails from them in the coming weeks.
“Continue to check blackboard under the counselor tab for information regarding senior yard signs,” Senior Class President Tori Davis said. “Speak with your HOA board to gather information on producing [neighborhood] signs.”
Prom is one month away and tickets are already on sale in Wendy Willoughby’s room. They are $100 and guarantee access to the Carnival themed dance on April 27. If you haven’t paid your junior dues, you must buy one to attend before spring break. After break, sales for out-of-school students will go on sale.
The senior song for graduation and class shirt voting has started. Make sure you take the poll, sent out via Remind, by March 29.
Submissions for potential senior class project ideas are being requested by the officers. If you have an idea on how to leave a legacy for the class, talk to one of the senior class officers today!
Some final dates to put on the calendar. Senior night is May 16 at 6 p.m., Baccalaureate is May 21 at 7 p.m., and Commencement is May 24 at 7 p.m. Seniors remember to be in good academic standing and keep your occurrences to a minimum, so you can exempt senior final exams. Keep pushing for two more months.
That’s it for this month. Seniors the end is near. Only eight weeks remain in your high school career and this senior walk. Let’s finish strong and go Panthers!
“Take a deep breath, and continue to work hard to finish out the year! Don’t let senioritis get the best of you, you can do it,” Davis said. “The tassel’s worth the hassle.”
