PVHS #SpartanNation December 18


We want to remind you of an important deadline that is fast approaching. December 22nd is the last day to withdraw/drop a Scott Community College Class with a "W".  IF you miss this date, you will be given the letter grade earned on your transcript at the college and high school.


 2nd Semester Scott Community College Courses: If you intend to take courses at SCC 2nd semester, you must meet with your counselor to get paperwork; completed enrollment paperwork must be submitted to your school counselor by Jan 8, 2021. This deadline is in place in order to process the appropriate paperwork and get all course materials/textbooks prior to the beginning of the course. If you do not meet this deadline, you may still enroll in courses at SCC but you may not receive PVHS credit and the courses will not count toward the Good Standing requirements of 5 classes + Wellness. The cost of joint enrollment is the responsibility of the student/family. You can make an appointment to meet with your counselor and pick up enrollment paperwork in the PV Counseling Office. Please see your counselor with any questions.  


Academic Awards:  In order to qualify for Academic Awards: a student must earn a weighted GPA of 3.75 or above.  The Awards are based on the GPA of 2 semesters (previous Spring and current Fall semester.)  If students receive a 3.75-3.99 in one or both semesters, they will receive Academic Honors.  If student receive a 4.0 or greater in both semesters, they will receive Academic Excellence.  If students receive less than a 3.75 in either semester, they are not eligible for Academic Awards for that school year.
