DHS Senior Checklist

Dixon High School 12th Grade Checklist ---2017-2018


Make sure you see Mrs. Kirk for Senior Interview


College/Career Fair--- September 26th from 1 pm to 2:30.  Parents welcome!  Great place to collect a ton of information on both college and careers. We also have weekly military/college visitors during lunch or advisement time for student’s benefit.



College Visits --- every 12th grader gets FOUR days to visit a college/military or job interview.  Proper paper work must be done one week prior to visit and upon return.  Will not count against attendance if procedure is done properly.  Once you have identified the colleges you want to visit, call their admissions office for dates/times available.

REMEMBER Seniors that often you need to keep a day or two for spring class registration and housing.


Attend ---every 12th grader can attend September 5th Vocational Rehabilitation (VR) presentation @ 2:30 in DHS Library.


Sign UP for our Fall College Bus Visit – To State Technical College in Linn, MO, Excellent Job Training and Job Placement. November 20th. Free T-Shirt for the 50 students who attend.
