Please, please, please challenge yourself! Take the opportunity during the next four years to do all you can do. Get involved with school activities and do your best to take advantage of the education and experiences offered to you. It’s an investment – the more put into it now, the more benefits will be available later. Start now as a Freshman, don’t wait until you are a Senior. Differences in “Honors” classes, and “Regular” classes are increased pace of work, increased depth of material and increased demands of out of class time (homework). Be College Ready!
