Class of 2017: Mandatory Senior Exit Survey!

All graduating seniors MUST fill out this brief survey about your post-graduation: click here or copy and paste this address into a browser:  https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/DV9CS5Q

Deadline to fill it out: May 2. Take a quick screenshot as soon as the completion page shows up. I know it disappears quickly; just show proof you did the Survey Monkey.


Deadline to bring Ms. Velhagen the screenshot showing that you completed it, and have your Golden Eagle Ticket stamped: May 5.  Remember: You can't get your cap & gown OR walk at graduation without this!

On the survey, please read the questions carefully, answer them thoroughly, and don't hit the back arrow. You are helping EHS track our students' plans after graduation, update the School Profile we send to colleges along with your transcript, tally scholarship totals (we are asked to track ALL scholarships offered, not just those accepted), and keep meaningful data about our students. Be sure to list ALL scholarships you were offered by ALL schools; if you're not sure of the exact amount, at least list the name of the scholarship.  THANK YOU! :)
