My dear Seniors,

If you would have asked me at the beginning of my career if I could see something like this happening, I would have laughed! Unfortunately, it is happening and for all of you, I am sorry that you are not getting to experience your senior year as you had always dreamed.  With many of you planning to attend college or trade school, there are still scholarship applications that are available for you to fill out.  I have put those with fast-approaching deadlines at the top.  Remember with the local scholarships, you will need to print out more than one application if you plan to apply to more than one of these scholarships. Please take the time to fill these out and return them to the designated address.  If you do not have the ability to print off the applications, you can park in front of the school and use the school Wifi to connect to the student printer.  Mr. Markham will be available from 9:00 a.m. to- 12:00 p.m. for you to pick up any documents that you may have sent to the printer.  If you need additional documents such as transcripts or a student picture, you can contact me anytime via email or cell phone and I will send them to you.  My heart goes out to each one of you.  I miss you all so much!! 

Love, Mrs. Shaw heart
