Prep Requirements For Graduation

In preparation for whatever new endeavors graduating seniors may be embarking upon,  they are required to compile this list of essays, letters, and documents in a binder. Some of these items are simply ones that they will need to have ready for applications or admissions.  Others will be the result of thinking about and planning for their future.  Hopefully, seniors will find this exercise both helpful and enriching.
