This has been a great week and we want to thank our students, coworkers, administration, and parents for their sweet gestures and kind words as we celebrated National School Counselor week. We love what we do!

Juniors had the opportunity to visit the Elevate For Tomorrow (E4T) conference and got some great insights and information that can help them as they navigate their path forward, and plan their futures. EVIT Registration continues as we prepare for our day with their representatives...don't forget, applications must be in by February 20! If you need an application or have questions, be sure to contact your counselor. There is still time to register and pay for the ACT which will be administered on February 20. Students have until February 15 to sign up and pay their fee. CAC will be on campus to administer the ACCUPLACER on March 21, and students need to sign up no later than February 27, and then need to register with CAC to be able to test. If students have any questions on what tests are happening and when, they can visit with their counselor for further details.
