About you: It reflects your interests, talents,
About your future: Where do you want to go? What do
you want from the rest of high school?
About you as a student: It shows your scholarship
and your continuing improvement as a thinker and a writer.
About you as a member of a
larger community: It is a
result of your interaction with your teachers, with your peers, both
from your school and from other schools, with your Web Pals, and
with others who are interested in what you have to say.

named index.htm (NEVER change
it and NEVER move it into a
folder). Design it to reflect your
personality but also make it
readable and easy to use for
your visitors. Be sure any
images do not detract from your
design but instead enhance it.
Look at what students have done
in the past on their index pages
to get ideas for yours. Your

Even though this web site is yours, it is

Note to students:
While some of these restrictions may seem excessive to you, you need to
know that some of them were the result of students' actions. Your peers,
because they could not make good decisions, caused the tighter
restrictions. Other restrictions are there for your safety.
