It’s all about ordering caps and gowns, bringing baby pictures for the year book, choosing colleges, writing essays, applications and waiting for that acceptance letter. Seniors at Dayton High School are GEARing UP toward graduation. One event that started the seniors in their last high school year was freshmen orientation. Five seniors came with words of wisdom from their own experiences and encouraged the freshmen to start thinking now about their life after high school
Senior Haley Puckett said; “Since this is my last year of high school, I am trying to be a part of as many school activities as possible.” Haley has already been accepted into a college. Some seniors are taking more rigorous curriculum trying to get their GPA’s up, while others are taking classes from a community college. It will end all too soon for these seniors and we are glad that they went through AVID classes and the GEAR UP Program, which is helping them make the choices they need to make. In January, GEAR UP is planning a FAFSA night for seniors and parents to learn about filing the FAFSA for financial aid to colleges.
