Let’s Talk College

Let’s Talk College Counselor Presentation 2019

Fall is a busy time for many Senior High School students as they submit college applications to public schools in the state of California.  Our middle school students aren’t quite ready to submit applications but they definitely can start researching and learning about colleges and the steps they need to take to apply.  The counselors would like to invite you to attend “Let’s Talk College” and informal Question and Answer time where you can learn how to start preparing your middle school student for college.  The same discussion will take place twice.  Choose the day and time that fits best with your schedule.

Wellness Wednesday


Take a moment at the end of each day and list a few good things that have happened. This can help refocus your emotions on all the positive things that happen each day, even when it doesn’t seem like it.
