Here are the things happening in the wonderful world of counseling:
1. eCredit Recovery: sign-ups started on December 10 and run through January 22. If you have failed an English, math or social studies class you can recover it online through the district-run program. Register at www.ecreditrecovery.com
2. Local Scholarships are here! Only SVVSD seniors can apply, which means your chances of winning are that much higher. All of the scholarships are listed on this blog… here I’ll even put the link to the exact page: https://blogs.svvsd.org/mauraebm/svvsd-local-scholarships/ Scholarships are due at 3:00 on Thursday, Feb. 27 – no exceptions.
