Students who have won a scholarship will receive an INVITATION in the MAIL to attend Awards Night on Monday, May 1st at 7:00 P.M. in the Performing Arts Center.  Students will be asked to arrive by 6:30 in order to participate in the ceremony.


Senior Final Transcript Requests

Since May 1 is the official date for seniors to notify colleges and universities of their official acceptance, there is no need to wait to request your final transcript!

Seniors should login their Parchment account and place this request.  Be sure to select “Hold for Grades,” and our Registrar will submit your final transcript once grades are posted.  If your college or university is not listed in Parchment, we will obtain that information from your Senior Clearance Sheet on Check-Out Day and mail your transcript directly to their admissions office.

See your counselor if you have any questions about this process.



Please be sure to inform all your teachers of classes you will miss due to an AP test.  The morning test will begin promptly at 8:00 a.m. YOU MUST REPORT TO THE TEST ROOM BY 7:45 A.M.    You are excused from your "0" hour class.  

The afternoon test will begin promptly at 12:00 p.m. and finish at approximately 3:30 p.m.  YOU MUST REPORT TO THE TEST ROOM BY 11:45 A.M.  I have asked your teachers to release you at 11:00 a.m. so you may eat lunch prior to your exam. If you normally go to work right after school, please inform your employer of your AP obligations.   Also, please inform your coaches if you will be late for a practice or an event. No student will be dismissed until all tests are collected and counted.

Students who have both a morning and afternoon test on the same day are advised to bring a sack lunch so that they may eat between the tests.  Test times cannot be delayed.

Please contact Mrs. Skach if you have any questions or difficulties related to the AP tests. Bags, Purses, Books, Cell phones and any other electronic or communication devices are not allowed in the testing room.  Please leave them in your locker.

Remember the following:   

1. Bring two #2 pencils, erasers AND black or dark blue pens.

2. You must bring a picture ID.

3. Bring a watch to pace yourself--no beeper watches!
4. Bring a graphing calculator for the Calculus and Statistic tests (required) -Chemistry and Physics tests (calculator is optional).
5. If you wish, bring a ruler or straight edge for the Physics test only. Books, dictionaries, notes, compasses and scratch paper are not allowed.
