Seniors: What do GoPo hours and graduation have in Common? To graduate, GoPo hours must be completed ASAP, especially for students who have an Incomplete from Terms 1, 2 or 3 because of not completing hours when taking GoPo during one of those terms. If in doubt about the status of your hours, contact your GoPo teacher!
