Individual meetings with your Counselor's begin mid-September. Don't fret if someone you know has heard from their counselor but you haven't. There are many of you, so it will take time to get to everyone. Any questions or concerns, please email your counselor (emails are below).
Please check out the Senior page under the Counseling Website. There is a lot of great information to be found there, and on the Counseling Website in general. Any other questions? Please email your counselor. You can find the Senior page here.
