Congratulations seniors! You’ve come a long way but the journey isn’t quite over yet. It’s time to make some decisions. If you’re planning on attending a technical school, college, or university you need to narrow your list of potential schools down to 5 or 10. Make a master calendar with college application due dates and financial aid deadlines. Ask your teachers for recommendations and your guidance office for official transcripts.
Acceptance letters and financial aid packages should start appearing in your mailbox by mid-April. Once you have decided on what college to attend and the deposit is in the mail take a deep breath and pat yourself on the back.
Thinking about getting a job after high school? Contact your guidance office to get help on creating a top-notch resume.
For many students, their senior year is their most memorable. Don’t sit on the sidelines! This is your last chance to attend a Raiders basketball game, get involved in the drama club, or run for student council. From Mr. Rensema’s calculus class to the prom, memories are being made every day at WA.
