Attention Seniors: Nov. 16-20th is Virginia College Application Week and we want ALL seniors to submit a college application! At least 32% of the senior class have already applied to at least one college and that is great! However, we want all of our senior class to apply to either college or a trade school. Next week opportunities will be given to seniors to work on college applications and receive fee waivers……plus, receive some free stuff as well!! Mrs. Dalton will begin meeting with 12th grade English classes on Friday. Start thinking about where you would like to apply! Just because you apply, does not mean you have to attend……but by applying you may be opening doors for yourself that you were not expecting!!


Girls Basketball will have early practice today (Nov. 16th). Be in the gym and ready to go by 3:05.
