Summer School for credit

Hey Maryvale students ! are you failing any of your classes this semester and think you are just completely screwed? If that’s the case then you should probably think about joining summer school. I know the whole idea of summer school doesn’t sound fun at all but trust me it is worth it. This is a credit recovery course so that means that you still do have a chance to make sure you stay on track for graduation. And no this doesn’t mean that this could be your reason to just not do your school work this is just one way you can bring your grades back up. Think of summer school as your second chance at passing. Summer school is only 1 month and depending on what hours you signed up for you wont be at school all day. I hope this was helpful to some of your guys...
