Choice Sheets and Expo Knight

It is time (can you believe it?) to sign up for classes. Our counselors have already begun getting into classes to share choices with students and teach them how to sign up for classes. We are hosting two parent nights to give you the information necessary to help guide your student.

From the Mac Library

Meet your students’ librarians! Jain Orr (she/they) & Lauren Alindogan (they/them) both have Masters degrees in Information Science (and are both artists). The Mac Library is a one-stop-shop for students to get help with everything from Chromebook tech issues to menstrual products to research help to finding a good book. When in doubt, send your student to the library!
