Soldotna High School is collecting gently used prom dresses, shoes, and accessories for Cinderella’s Closet 2013. This is a program where local ladies in need can receive free prom items. We have helped over 250 ladies from Ninilchik to Nikiski. Items can be dropped off to the main office.

There are two ways to order a transcript. Each way serves a different purpose.

If you need a transcript sent to a college or NCAA or a similar agency, then you will need to log on to: to order transcripts to be sent. The request is then forwarded to SoHi. After processing, it then goes through cyberspace, rather than the US mail, to get to its destination, which is much faster! All transcripts that are headed for NCAA, colleges, etc. have to be processed this way!

A final transcript is one that shows your second semester grades. If you order your transcript during second semester, you will need to make sure you choose “next grading period” when you go on to Parchment, that way your transcript request will wait until the grades are in at the end of the year before it is sent.
