Southeast Polk High School is celebrating National Decision Day today for our seniors. Decision Day allows seniors the opportunity to publicly share their post-secondary path and plans. Our High School Counselors always put on a great event with a variety of Decision Day activities for both seniors and high school staff.
Seniors were asked to wear something to signify which college, university, military branch, apprenticeship program, and/or career path he/she plans to pursue after high school. They were encouraged to stop into the counseling office throughout the day. The majority of them stopped right after the Senior Meeting. In the Counseling Office, they could indicate on a map which town/state they plan to attend college, receive training, and/or pursue employment, write their names on a banner to indicate their plans for after high school, and place a tack on a map to pinpoint where they plan to pursue these plans.
One of the really cool activities is that seniors could pick up a letter from a current SEP elementary student encouraging them to pursue their post-secondary plans and goals. Lastly, there were cookies!
Staff was also encouraged to wear something today to let our students know what college/university they attended and to discuss with classes the value of planning and pursuing post-secondary goals.
Congratulations to all seniors and the next chapter in your life story! This is such an exciting time! Enjoy!
