Ms. Garza's Tip of the Month

Write it and let it be!

Breath. It’s the start of a new year. We’re back to pre-covid days along with a continuation of covid life. Many of us haven’t been on a school campus in almost two years, and with that comes anxiety, fear, and uncertainty about school. We’re here to help you as best as we can - but we can’t do it all! We need you to help us help you. This month, practice taking some time at the end of your day to breathe, think about the bright moments throughout your day, but also about the not so bright ones. Write a sticky note about whatever it is that bothered you in class and leave it on a notebook that you won’t see at home. The tip is -- write it and let it be. Go home, enjoy your family, your pets, be with your friends! You are a student, but that title does not define who you are outside of this building. Take care of yourself so that we can come back the next day and do it all over again.

College and Career Tips

August College Tip!

Start researching colleges now! It's important to know schools that might interest you or programs that might be a future goal. Knowing this information early will help you decide which classes to take in high school and what goals you need to set in order to make your dream come true.


Make a spreadsheet with each college and a list of positives and negatives. Get on a campus if possible! Denton is a great college town with plenty of opportunities to get on campus for athletic, music or other events. Take advantage of having these schools close by to familiarize yourself with a typical college campus environment.


Attend a college fair! NORTEX, North Texas's largest college fair, will take place on Monday, September 13th from 6:30-8:30 at the Golden Triangle Mall. There will be college recruitment representatives from Texas and across the country. This is a fantastic opportunity to learn about lots of colleges in one place...and it is just down the road!
