SEnior Celebration Expectations

Graduation season is an exciting time for our La Cueva seniors and their families! Students have worked hard for four years to achieve this milestone, and as a collective Class of 2022, no one senior should impact the ability of others to celebrate with friends and family. Though we cannot take away a student’s graduation accomplishment, participating in the Graduation Ceremony and 'walking the line' is a privilege reserved for students who take all culminating senior events seriously.

Students who do not follow La Cueva High School's code of conduct may lose the privilege of walking in the Ceremony. Seniors are expected to abide by the school and district discipline matrix at all times, including during celebration and rehearsal events. As with all school events, all senior and graduation events are drug & alcohol free. La Cueva Administration reserves the right to search, breathalyze and/or assess for drug use if reasonable suspicion is present.

Many staff members and parents have been working diligently to ensure successful and enjoyable events are planned for the Class of 2022. It is imperative that students are respectful and timely for all senior obligations up to and including Graduation Day to ensure a positive experience for all!

College Research Worksheet

Below is a link for a generic College Research Worksheet. I encourage you to make a copy of it and change it to make it your own. For instance, you can add a section or delete a question to list what is important to you. It is often hard to remember what each college offers when you are researching and it helps to write it down as you go.

ACT/SAT

All schools across the nation accept either the ACT or SAT so it is your choice which one you want to take. You will need to sign up on your own. If you are on Free or Reduced Price Lunch you can get a fee waiver from the Counseling Office.
