PSAT Parent Night
    Thank you to everyone who attended the PSAT parent session.  For such a COLD night we had a great turnout!  Below you will find the PowerPoint used during that presentation.  Be sure to go all the way to the end, there is some useful information about current SAT/ACT scores for UNC system schools!  If your student did not receive their score report and testing book it will be distributed on Wednesday January 22nd in homeroom!
    Naviance for Freshman
    Freshman students visited the media center in October to work on Naviance.  They took a survey about their transition to high school, created SMART academic and personal goals, as well as worked on a career interest inventory.  The PowerPoint to assist parents and students who may wish to go back can be found here: Freshman 2017

    • Don't neglect your study habits!  Keep up the good work, and continue to improve your study skills. 


    • Talk to your school counselors, teachers, family members or trusted adults about your plans for college.  If you're not sure if college is the best option for you, talk to your counselor.
