I am starting to hear the familiar sounds of "senioritis" around the school and cafeteria. While I understand that it can be a challenge to continue motivating yourself to finish your high school career strong, it is important that you do finish strong!
With Seniors only having 5 Mondays of high school left, the appeal of letting everything slide to just enjoy the remaining time seems to be very strong. I even have Juniors who are claiming to have “senioritis” early and this is definitely not a good thing.
Third quarter grades were rough (to say the least). This is particularly a concern for seniors as it can jeopardize graduation (a real fear for many) and it can also jeopardize your college future. For example, remember, the colleges reserve the right to revoke your acceptance if the grades you are earning are not on pace with what they expected at the time of your application. They can also place you on academic probation and take back scholarship offers. Obviously, these would not be good scenarios, but it does happen every year.
So, while the weather is finally improving, and we all have that desire to get outside, the upcoming weeks may make it hard to focus on the day to day responsibilities of meeting your classroom expectations. Please keep pushing to work hard in your classes and finish the race strong!
