Do not wait, ensure you are on top of all your dates and deadlines! Please check my schoology page for more information regarding all of your post-secondary goals.
 
Senior Appointments. If you have not made an appointment with me yet, please do so. I have been LOVING talking with each of you over the last few weeks. Please note that these meetings are not just for college info, but they also serve as a great check in opportunity to ensure you are on track for graduation.  Go here to make an online booking.

Help is on the way: If you are concerned about your grades on Schoology or struggling with getting a handle on one of your online classes, high school staff will be meeting next week to finalize the plans for afternoon tutorials. Starting the week of October 12th teachers will let students know when they are available for small group help. AP teachers will have extra support, math will have tutorials, opportunities will be available for you to get caught up and work closely with your teachers. Teachers may assign you to their afternoon meetings or you may reach out  to them if you need help.

Charlotte has been setting up meetings and getting information out about online zoom visits with admission counselors. You have an incredible opportunity to get first hand info from the people who will be reading your college applications. Click Here.
