Gators of the Week: Seniors Complete College Applications
We had 248 students sign in and complete at least one college application. We know we missed a few because of scanner issues so that total is probably actually closer to 275. Many students completed more than three applications with the help of college reps and their school counselors!
To date, 1,196 transcripts have been delivered electronically through Parchment. 72% of our senior class has already created their Parchment account!
The tailgate was a huge hit again this year.
The mini-college and business fair drew lots of traffic from seniors and underclassmen alike and we appreciated them coming in and assisting students with applications when the fair was over.

Signing Out Procedures
A reminder to parents regarding signing students out during the school day. Someone from the student's sign out sheet must come in and show ID to dismiss a child. We do not accept phone calls or emails for dismissal. You can come in on Monday to sign your child out during the week but only up until Friday of the same week. Also, if you are dismissing your child during ILT, then it is helpful to have made arrangements with the student ahead of time. We appreciate your help to assist in making this process efficient.
Counseling and Advisement Assignments for Students
Counseling and Advisement Team
The Counseling & Advisement team is working towards a more intentionally focused program to provide students with the best support. Rather than counselors having students in all grade levels (9-12), we are realigning to be able to more appropriately serve students’ transitional needs at the different levels. This realignment will also more closely mirror our CREW design allowing students to stay with their school counselor their 9th and 10th grade years and then have another counselor their 11th and 12th grade years.
