Seniors: Gateway stuff 5/11

Hi Seniors,

We’ve been making good progress at senior seminar on Wednesdays. For those of you who can’t make it, I hope you’ve been checking in here or with me about where you’re supposed to be.

By now, here’s what you should have done (at least):
1) Settled on a theme for your presentation (a theme is not one word, nor is it the title of a movie or TV show you like)
2) Given me a notecard with the name of four people whose gateways you absolutely cannot miss
3) Looked over and understand the rubric: SeniorGatewayRubric

Also, each of you has been paired with a UPCS staff member to check in with, and you may be asked to go through your presentation with them once between now and Friday, May 19. Here are the student/teacher pairings:

Mrs. Kelly Ms. Reed Mr. T Mr. Shulkin Ms. Colwell
