Do you have a senior to send off?
A great way to say goodbye to your senior is to create a senior salute for him or her. You can send in pictures of your senior when he or she was little as well as recent photos! You can include a written message, as well. Seniors may also purchase a salute with friends or with people from sports or clubs! Senior salutes are so important because they offer a special way your senior will be remembered in the 2016-17 yearbook. Buy one now, before Wednesday, January 10, 2018.

Transferring Dual Credit to Your CollegeIf you have taken any Dual Credit classes in high school (through RB or the CACC), you must request to have your transcript from the college issuing the dual credit sent to the school you will be attending in the fall. Ex: If you took Dual Credit College Algebra, you need to contact UMKC and have your UMKC transcript with the College Algebra credit on it sent to the college you will be going to in the fall.
Visit this webpage for transcript request links to most Dual Credit colleges: http://career-center.org/dual-college-credit/. Check with the RB or CACC teacher if unsure which college issues the credit.
