Boselli Scholarship Deadline approaching...

November 26th is the Boselli Scholarship deadline! Two scholarships will be awarded the last week of December - don't miss this opportunity if it applies to you. See the bulletin board outside of the counselors' office!

There are TONS of scholarship opportunities being sent to us everyday. Check the guidance bulletin board (main hallway) for flyers and see Mrs. Curran for details...

Senior class visits = complete!

We have made our way to all senior classrooms, reiterating announcements regarding graduation, scholarship/application recommendations, attendence, credit recovery, etc. The Ed White counselors are now focusing efforts on updating 10th grade ePEPs and will then look to visiting 9th grade classrooms...see you all soon...

If you are a provisional senior (an "11th" grader who entered high school in the fall of 2005) and you are trying to graduate at the end of this year, you should have signed one. The counselors were outside of the cafeteria for four days last month and we have been in our offices ever since! With or without your signature, your credit check was mailed home (and we kept a copy, so don't try to pull any tricks). :)


...and your parents know! So don't try to beat your parents to the mail and intercept it. They WILL see your grades eventually and if not, they WILL find out that/if you failed all year. So be mature, fess up and turn over a new leaf. See your teacher about grade recovery if you need to. At the end of the semester, look into credit recovery through ALC. See your counselor if you have questions.
