  • Attention: Freshmen and Freshmen Parents

  • The State of Texas has dramatically changed the graduation requirements for freshmen, so we will be hosting an informational meeting to review topics and answer questions.
    For example, do you know what an endorsement is and how many you have to have to graduate?  Are you familiar with your graduation plan?  Did you know you have to start working on graduation requirements as a freshmen?  Are you familiar with the end-of-course exam requirements?


    If you are wondering about the answers to any of these questions, mark your calendars for 6:00 p.m. on January 15. We will have sessions in English and Spanish. This is a meeting for freshmen and their parents only!
    Please, arrive by 5:45, so you can sign in, and we can begin on time.  The meetings will begin at 6:00 p.m.
