Career and College Exploration

On Tuesday we had a seminar for seniors in the auditorium giving information about college exploration and applying to college!

If you'd like to access the resources I shared, you can view them at this link:

Also, please keep in mind that for the month of October some colleges are waiving their application fees. The list of schools who are offering those discounts are also listed on the page posted above.

Finally, if you still need to apply please join us in the auditorium on Friday during seminar so that you can come down and get that application submitted! We will also be taking pictures of our students who have applied and where they plan to go. Please come down if you'd like to be part of that!

Hello Friends! As we are gearing up for the return of students we wanted to touch base and let you know we are diligently working to get all the ducks in a row, i's dotted, t's crossed and all the things that need to be addressed, addressed.

Schedules, which we usually spend the summer working on, have gone “Live”, Wednesday August 12th. The process that usually takes 2 months we are attempting to do in 1 week! (We can do it!!)

Mrs. Fritz and Mrs. Weishaar are working hard to make sure your kids get the courses they pre-enrolled in.

Schedules will be available the day before school, Wednesday August 26th. (This is nothing new, and how we do schedules every year)

We are all excited to see your kids back in school very soon...

Enjoy the rest of your extended summer and know we are always here to help.

Mrs. Weishaar
Mrs. Fritz
