Attention seniors: It’s that time of year when you need to start thinking about Class Rings, Letter Jackets and Graduation.  I have included information from Herff Jones that might be helpful to you and your parents.

For 12 years Herff Jones has guaranteed that class rings and letterman jackets are delivered before Christmas but all orders must meet pre-Christmas factory Deadlines.  This year that cutoff date is OCTOBER 13th 2020.

 SAT Fall 2020 - Seniors:

  • The school-day fall 2020 SAT is for 12th grade students as there was no spring school-day 2020 SAT due to Covid-19. The SAT test date is Wednesday, October 14th. Please make sure to save the date in your calendars. More information will be provided at a later date. This test is an in-person test and fulfills the state SAT requirement for graduation.  Only school-day SAT administrations fulfill the requirement; taking the SAT on other dates in other locations does not fulfill the graduation requirement.
