*UPDATED* Opportunities for Seniors and Families Planning for Post-High School

My apologies for getting this update out late. Sometimes life just happens! We are starting the next round of senior meetings to check on class progress, graduation progress, college application progress, and scholarship support.
We are down to 4 weeks left in the semester. Please be sure to check your student's grades in IC. Finals will be January 17-19th. The schedule will be as follows:
January 17th Period 1 - 8:15-9:15; Period 4 9:30-10:30; Period 7 10:45-11:45.
January 18th Period 2 8:15-9:15; Period 5 9:30-10:30
January 19th Period 3 8:15-9:15; Period 6 9:30-10:30
Seniors, please be sure to send a "Thank you" to staff who supported your application efforts by writing a letter of recommendation.
REMINDER: NO COLLEGE OR SCHOLARSHIP APPLICATIONS WILL BE PROCESSED OVER WINTER BREAK
If you need a transcript, please come by the Post-Secondary Center (counseling office) and complete a transcript request. Please give two weeks’ notice so that we can ensure that your transcripts arrive in a timely manner.
Students are responsible for sending in SAT or ACT test scores to all colleges. Log on to the student account at Collegeboard.org (SAT) or ACT.org (ACT) and request official scores be sent to complete the college application process.
