     Rising Senior Day (Class of 2021)

    The counseling department would like to congratulate our rising seniors on their perseverance through an unpredictable time. In order to be proactive as we head into the summer we have created a video that will outline some important steps to address postsecondary planning. There are several links to supporting information and action items to complete. Additionally there is a student/parent information and  a sample student activity template.

    During the summer months we will send out reminders through the student’s gmail account and Remind101.  If you have any questions please contact your student’s counselor.
