Counselors will provide a wealth of information for students and parents as they prepare for the senior year and graduation. They will share information about GA Futures, the college search and application process, dual enrollment, eligibility for college athletics, military options, workforce opportunities, and important dates for rising seniors as the countdown to graduation begins!

Spring ahead - time change this weekend
Prom 2019 - and early release on Friday, April 5
Students attending Prom often want to leave school early on that Friday. Please know that students attending Prom must be in attendance at least half of the school day on Friday, April 5th.
This year, we are trying something new regarding students wanting to leave early on "Prom Eve Friday". We have developed a form for parents to complete and submit online. Administrators and Administrative Assistants will use the information shared on that form to contact parents and verify permission to leave early. Please help us be as efficient as possible and submit this information to us electronically through this link:
You may submit this now through Wednesday, April 3rd. The form will close at 3pm on Wednesday, April 3rd.
Advisement conferences - 9th and 11th grade
Spring conferences target 9th and 11th grade advisement students; in the fall, we held 10th and 12th grade conferences.
If you have a child in 9th or 11th grade, please be on the look out for an invitation from your child's advisor to come in for this conference. If you don't get this invitation by mid-March, please let me or another administrator know so that we can work with your child's advisor to make this happen.
