COMMUNITY

All Credit By Choice grades must be received by the Registrar’s office by May 1st at 2:00 p.m. to be added to graduates credits.  Grades must be sent directly from the Institution giving the grade by fax to 907-742-6259 and an official copy mailed.   No copies directly from students are accepted.

The yellow final transcript form for seniors is now available in the Curriculum Office.   Your college will require a final transcript with your graduation date and final credits posted before finalizing your college first semester classes.  All requests must have a complete address for the college you are attending before we are able to process your request.  An unofficial transcript will also be mailed to your home when grades post.   Plan ahead and get your final transcript form turned in.

Any student missing final exams needs to complete the Late Final Form in the Curriculum Office.  Finals CANNOT be given early and the makeup day has been set for June 3rd at 8:00 am in the Curriculum Office.  Zeros will be turned in for missing exams and grade changes turned in when exams have been graded.  Any questions can be answered in the Curriculum Office.

Students in 9-11th grades that are wanting correspondence grades to post to transcripts for this semester must have the grade posted to their transcript by July 24.   It is suggested that correspondence classes be completed by mid June in order for exams to be graded and the correspondence school to send the grade to your school in time for the grade to be posted no later than the July 24th deadline.    Any classes completed after July 24th will be posted to transcripts for first semester of the 15/16 school year and not able to be used for eligibility.

Student Government will be having a one day blow out everything goes sale on class t-shirts and senior sweatshirts.  Come get some class colors and be creative for the last assembly of the year--CROSSOVER--on Tuesday, May 5th.  All shirts will be sold for $5, and senior sweatshirts for $20.  Come to the elevator at lunch on Thursday, April 30 early--first come, first serve, and limited sizes are available!

Seniors- library books are due now.  Please return them as soon as possible to avoid being put on the fines list.  All other library books are due Friday, May 8.

Seniors, if you turned in pictures to the yearbook, please come by room G212 to pick up your flashdrive or disk before Friday!

Anchorage School District students will be riding their bikes to celebrate Bike to School Day on Wednesday, May 6. More than 50 schools will be participating in this event that promotes healthy habits, safe bicycling and a cleaner environment. Last year Alaska ranked first in the nation for number of schools and participants in Bike to School Day.

Students who ride their bikes to school on May 6 may enter a prize drawing for a Redline Raid  bike from the Bicycle Shop or in-store credit for the value of the bike. See Ms. Miller (the PE teacher) for raffle tickets at the front of school on May 6. Help keep Alaska #1! Bike to School on May 6!
