Reminder, Seniors with November 1st college application deadlines need to have set up their Common Application and/or Coalition accounts and requested counselor and teacher recommenders no later than Thursday, October 22nd.  This will ensure that school staff can complete their piece of the application by the deadline.  Reminder, counselors and teachers do not monitor these accounts after school hours and on weekends.  Meeting these deadlines are the student’s responsibility.  Please Canvas message Mr. Chambliss or Mrs. Theiss with questions.

Please stand for the pledge: I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America, and to the Republic for which it stands, one nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.
