Local High Schools Partner For Junior Parent Night

The Seminole Ridge High School counseling department has partnered with three other area high schools — Palm Beach Central, Royal Palm Beach and Wellington — to host the first-ever Junior Parent Night.

Students and their parents are invited to attend at 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday, April 5. The evening’s opening session, in the SRHS auditorium, will present information about the college admission process and financial aid. A college fair with representatives from more than 25 colleges will follow in the cafeteria.

Hawk Senior Student Showcase Winner — The Palm Beach International Film Festival has chosen Hawk senior Kaci Sleeth to be among the student finalists and winners represented in its annual Student Showcase of Films. Sleeth, a member of the SRHS TV production program, was the first-place Music Video Award winner for her video “Possibilities.”

Selected from more than 250 submissions, award winners were announced March 11 as part of the Student Showcase of Films Red Carpet Awards Show at Lynn University in Boca Raton. Winning films, like Sleeth’s, will be shown on the big screen at the showcase premiere in April. For more information about the Student Showcase of Films, visit www.pbfilm.com.
