Seniors of 2021

Welcome to your senior year! This is an exciting and overwhelming time. Relax and breathe, we are here to help you!

Guidance will be hosting a senior class meeting on Wednesday September 9, 2020 at 12:15p in the ATM room to go over some things that are upcoming. Those things are: SAT exam, obtaining recommendation letters, applying to college, and completing the FAFSA.

We will be with you every step of the way during your senior year and beyond. So, take a breathe, hold on, and we will help you through it. It will be AMAZING!

ATTENDANCE

Attendance matters at all levels of education, whether you are in person or zoom! Please make every effort to get your child to school or get yourself to school.

As we head into the fall season and colder weather is upon us please remember to dress warmly. If your child is in need of boots, gloves, jackets, etc. please contact the Guidance office and we can help!

As a reminder, the Guidance food pantry is still offering the Weekender Program to students, which is a backpack full of food to take home for the weekend. All your student needs to do it come to Guidance on their last day of in person school, either Thursday or Friday and sign out a backpack. The only requirement is that they return the backpack on their next in person school day! Our pantry is fully stocked and ready to help the students of our school community! If you have questions about the Guidance food pantry or would like to donate to the pantry, please contact Ms. Kelly at kdavis@msad24.org or 868-5274.
