Greetings
 

Welcome to the Guidance office!

Senior Interviews

Senior parents are encouraged to attend their child's senior interview during the month of September. During this meeting, we will discuss your child's transcript, GPA, high school credits, and talk about plans for after graduation.  We will look at the college admissions & financial aid process, along with exploring career paths.  I look forward in working with you and your senior on this amazing milestone!

Selective Service Memo

An important announcement for all 17 and 18 year old men.

We want you to remember that when you turn 18, it is the law that you register with Selective Service. You must register within 30 days of your 18th birthday. The Selective Service now accepts early submission of registration information by 17-year-old men.  Men can now submit information at age 17 years and 3 months old, and be automatically registered when they turn 18.

It is your civic responsibility to register with Selective Service.  By registering, you remain eligible for student loans and grants, job training, government jobs, and driver’s licenses in most states.
