Summer Resources (High School)

I hope you're spending a lot of time off the screen and that you don't see this email for a while! Still, I wanted to share some summer resources. I also recommend that you check out the Redford Library to find some fun summer reading. GoodReads is another great resource to find good books.

  • Social media cleanup: This is a good time to clean up your social media profiles. If you have any questionable photos or language, delete them now before you start your college search in earnest.
