Accompanied by live music from the Seminole Ridge High School marching band, the SRHS school counseling department and the Hawk Class of 2016 celebrated the annual College Decision Day on April 26 before the school day began. College-bound seniors signed a banner to indicate their post-secondary plans and received a variety of congratulatory goodies for the day.
Coffee Talk with Freshman Parents May 25 — The SRHS counseling department invites the parents of freshman students to a Coffee Talk on Wednesday, May 25 from 7:45 to 8:30 a.m. in the media center. Topics of discussion will be dual enrollment and credit recovery opportunities.
Dual enrollment is a program that allows high school students to earn both high school and college credit simultaneously by taking college courses.
Students who have failed one or more state-required core classes should be enrolled as soon as possible in a credit recovery course to begin the recovery process. Failing state-required classes will cause students to be off track for graduation, but credit recovery opportunities are available on campus and online.
Refreshments will be served. RSVP to the guidance office at (561) 422-2610 or to firstname.lastname@example.org.
