It's hard to believe we are 6 weeks into the semester. College application season is upon us, so this edition of the counseling newsletter will feature everything seniors and their parents/ caregivers need to know to navigate the process virtually.
Also in this edition of the newsletter, you'll find information about:
- How to access IPR grades
- School Counseling Advisory - an invitation
- Registering to vote
- Latinx Heritage Month (Sept 15-Oct 15)
- Accessing independent reading books
- Curb-side lunch pick-up

The first progress report grades will be available for view in StudentVUE/ParentVUE by Friday.
