Senior Summer Newsletter - if you missed in your mailings

​​

Welcome Class of 2016 Seniors!

 

I hope the class of 2016 is enjoying their summer.  I look forward to helping you reach your goal of graduating on May 24, 2016.  Get those last moments of rest and relaxation out of the way these final weeks of summer, so you can focus and hit it hard this fall semester.  Some things to take care of while you are heading into your senior year:

 

At orientation, look over your credit check letter and schedule.  You must enroll in and complete any state required courses in order to graduate.  You also must complete and pass 24 credits in order to complete Rockwood graduation requirements.  Take extra courses under the required categories that you have not completed as a safeguard.  Maybe it is time to try an AP course in your schedule to prepare you better for college.  Remember that first semester courses may not be changed once the semester has begun, so you might want to wait to take a study hall till you see if one of your courses is more challenging than you desired.  You are welcome to drop one course for study hall but cannot have more than one period of study hall.  If you see glaring mistakes or desire a change in courses, please visit with your guidance counselor up till your day of orientation on Tuesday, August 4.  Schedule changes will be permitted up till this date if the change will work within our master schedule and not interfere with balanced classes.  Also, do not forget, if eligible, to submit your senior incentive early-out or late-arrival forms to the senior office to be approved.  Until approved for this privilege, you must attend study hall.

 

Check into ACT testing dates.  You definitely want to take the exam twice in your high school career.  Taking the ACT a second time can help raise your score in most cases.  Do not wait until the last second to take this college entrance exam.  ACT registration must be completed online at www.actstudent.org.  On this site you may register, find a list of upcoming dates, and request your scores to be sent to specific colleges.  Questions will be fielded by Mr. Kirby, the Testing/A+ coordinator, and Mrs. Lovendahl.  Along with signing up to test, make sure you look into taking the ACT Prep course.  These courses are generally coordinated before several test dates by Mrs. Grimshaw.  There are certain sessions that will help with overall test taking skills, and others that help with specific subject matter, like mathematics.  Course times are in the afternoon/evening.  Take advantage of this program.  Paying the prep registration fee buys you a manual with several practice tests inside.

 

Visit with Mr. Buckman and your counselor throughout the year to obtain information that will prepare you for college or work after high school.  They have a wide selection of resources and information for your perusal.  Use them to your advantage.

 

If you have not submitted an application yet, save money for your parking pass.  Parking permits have a cost of $180.  Our fine policy for violations will stay in effect next school year.  You must purchase a permit to park on our lots.  Senior permit application processing will occur this summer after the final submission date of July 23.  We will be randomly assigning parking spots after that date.  You must submit the appropriate form, payment, verification of driver's license/insurance, and have all fines paid on this date to be eligible for a senior parking permit in the closest lots.  If all information is not submitted correctly there is a strong chance you will not be given a permit on senior orientation and you will have to slide into the underclassman lot for parking.  If your application is approved, your senior permit will be issued during orientation on August 4.  Any seniors who would like to partner up this upcoming year with a fellow senior will be given the opportunity to earn the closest numbered spots in the parking lot.  Monies collected from parking permit fees go towards parking lot maintenance and improvements, and also other programs that benefit kids.  You should see these fees coming right back to you with certain programs.  Our parking regulations are included in this mailing.

 

Orientation for 12th grade students will be conducted on Tuesday, August 4, 2015, from 9:00 a.m. until 11:30 a.m. in the school commons.  At this time you may turn in your health and census forms, pick up your class schedule and parking permit (if purchased), and purchase a yearbook.  Please make sure that you bring money with you to pay any outstanding fines you have; otherwise, you won't be allowed to pick up your schedule.  Reminder: bring any information needed to complete your emergency consent form as well as updated immunization records

If you are a new student to EHS, welcome, and please call the Guidance Office to schedule an appointment to register for classes.  Regular school dress code is expected on orientation day.  I have also included a dress code policy reminder in this mailing.

 

Other orientation dates and times:  VICC orientation w/ transportation, August 4, 12:30 – 3:00 p.m.

Makeup orientation, Monday, August 10, 10:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.

 ​

Seniors must have their picture taken by Interstate Studio at EHS in order to appear in the special color photo section of their senior yearbook.  Even if you will be purchasing senior photos from a different photographer, you must have Interstate take your yearbook picture. 

 

Senior Portrait Sessions will be done at school during special Seniors-only sessions. Mark your calendars now for this date, and enjoy your summer!  THERE IS NO NEED to schedule your portrait sitting over the summer. 

 

All seniors MUST be photographed to be in the yearbook. There is a $5.00 sitting fee. PLEASE BRING YOUR $5 CHECK OR MONEY ORDER PAYABLE TO "EHS PUBLICATIONS".  You must also bring your previous year's student ID or state issued ID before you can have your picture taken.
