Please check your email and complete the Senior Survey that was sent to you as soon as possible. It is important for us to gather the information included in this survey so that we can best assist you with your postsecondary plans regardless if you are attending college or not. For those of you who will be attending a college or university in the fall, we need your responses to be accurate so that scholarships and transcripts can be sent to the appropriate schools following graduation from SPHS. If you have any questions, stop by the Guidance Office.
