ADVISORY LAST FRIDAY
All of our Advisory groups engaged in some fun Thanksgiving/Fall activities as we begin to gear down towards break. Everyone has been working so hard each and every day which made 30 minutes of fun and stress relief exactly what our students and staff needed!!!
Parents, please, when you have the opportunity, sit down with your child and have them log in and give you a tour of Naviance. There is a treasure trove of information and activities that you and your child can engage in to help them transition to the next steps in high school, but more importantly, to the next steps after high school as it relates to the 3 E's (Enrollment, Employment or Enlistment). Please reach out to your child's counselor if you have any further questions about Naviance.
