IHSAA Student-Athlete Tip of the Week: The end of the school year is fast approaching. It’s no time to slow down and relax. In fact, it’s probably the most important time for the student-athlete. Why? It’s the final push to your academic year. With summer close by, it is tempting to look ahead and forget how crucial your final exams and final grade point average become. It should be your main area of concentration. So make it a point to finish these last few weeks with the same enthusiasm you started the school year with. Put a big emphasis on your final exams and your year-end grade point average! Summer will be there waiting.
Seniors: The guidance office has received a $1,000 Student Assistance Award—Essay Contest. Stop in to pick up eligibility requirements.
