Summer School Opportunities

Students can either repeat required courses for graduation or take classes to get ahead. Just a reminder that students in the graduating cohorts of 2018-2020 must earn a total of 22 credits to graduate, and students attain grade placement by earning the following amounts of credits toward graduation: 

   Sophomores: 4 credits
   Juniors: 10 credits
   Seniors: 16 credits
Students who are in jeopardy of not meeting this criteria at the end of 2nd semester, we strongly encourage you to enroll in a Summer School program to get back on track for ‘on-time Graduation’! Some deadlines are first-come-first-serve and some deadlines are in July.
See Summer Academy and CTE programs on the CK district website; go to Learning > Programs > Summer Programs.

This is the one and only diploma that will ever be printed for the graduate.  You can pick them up: June 12-19 in the current counseling office and June 26-30 in the H-13 portable, the new home of the Counseling and Career Center.  Running Start grads: June 26-30 in the H-13 portable (Olympic College grades must post before these are available)
Diplomas will also be available beginning in late August, in the H-13 portable.  GRADUATES, please plan ahead. You must go to the registrar’s office in person and let her know if someone else must pick up your diploma. They will not be released to family members without the grad letting Ms Orwin know beforehand.

Mrs. Finley’s Community Living Skills class combines personal living skills, effective skill development and financial planning to help prepare our students for life after high school.  Our community access trips give students an opportunity to see businesses in action.  Speakers usually have us tour their facility, drawing attention to job skills, requirements, and attitudes necessary to be successfully employed.  

In addition, Academic Support classes, participate in mock interviews at the culmination of our school year, hopefully, resulting in summer employment opportunities.  The students who are interviewed receive valuable feedback from these employers.  

We would like to thank the following businesses/employers for their willingness to take their time for our students this year:
