From Bryan Valdivia '16: "FOCUS ON YOUR GPA. The most important thing you need to do is focus on your grades. By the time you get to our grade there is no way you can raise it up.* Work hard in class, and do your work so you can go to a good college. 
*Clarification from Ms. Davis: senior year grades are important for college admission and enrollment, but it's true, they have only minimal impact on overall GPA. 
SHOUT OUT! Does your class read the announcements? Shout your teacher out! See Ms. Davis or email
