Don’t Miss Scholarship and College Visit Information
Parents, please remind your student to STOP BY THE STUDENT SUPPORT SERVICES OFFICE
for information on scholarships, college visits, and more. We get a lot of information that doesn't always make it into announcements, so students are encouraged to stop in periodically to see what's going on. Check the Student Support website
, too, but know that not all items are posted there.
Seniors who’ve Made College Decisions
Any seniors that have committed to a school must update their Family Connection and "set their attending college" so we can send appropriate transcripts and update the College Map in the Student Support Office.
