Class of 2019 Information
There is a lot of information for the Class of 2019 at this time of the year so here is a recap of all things SENIOR! Please read carefully!
All seniors need to complete the UCPS Graduation Survey in Naviance. This is the only way we will know where to send your final transcript. The Graduation Survey can be found on the bottom right-hand corner of the main Naviance page under the “What’s New” section. Please complete the Graduation Survey by Friday, May 17, so that we can gather the information needed for our Academic Signing Day on May 21.
The Academic Signing Day is an opportunity to recognize your post-secondary plans. Please dress in your college spirit wear and be ready to celebrate!
The Scholarship Breakfast will be at 8am on Friday, May 24. If you have not done so already, it is not too late to submit scholarship information. Please remember to submit all scholarships received, academic and athletic, not just the ones you plan on accepting. We want to see you there!
As a little incentive for submitting scholarship information, we are holding a drawing for participants to receive a college t-shirt of their choice. Two students have already won. There will be another drawing the week of May 20 so it is not too late to submit your letters/emails for a chance to win!
Our Class of 2019 board is filling up! If you have not done so already, it is not too late to submit your letters (or acceptance emails). You can drop off copies, or email them to your counselor so we can recognize you on the board.
In addition to dropping off copies to Ms. McAleer in Guidance, students should enter scholarships into Naviance. Students should enter all offers received, athletic and academic, regardless of whether they intend to accept the offer or not. We want to include as many students as possible in the end of year scholarship breakfast.
Plan on enlisting in the armed forces? We want to recognize those entering the military, please let us know the branch you plan on attending so you can be recognized!
