We will be hosting our Virtual College and Career Fair throughout the month of May!

Once a week, teachers will share the counselor’s slides, which will give all students the opportunity to learn more about different career options and colleges and to assess their own interests.

Thank you to everyone who shared his or her college or career with us! We couldn’t do this without you.

Warm regards,

Christie N. Thompson
