Quick Updates from Counseling

Mighty Falcons, I know spring has sprung and we’re all ready to go enjoy the (usually) beautiful weather, but there are a few more things to accomplish before we put this school year to bed.

1. JUNIORS – the ACT exam is next Tuesday, April 28. Have your bums in your seats by 7:30 a.m. so you can get this VERY critical test done well. The ACT can get you into college, a job, and make you eligible for a scholarship! (We’ll have breakfast at 7:00 a.m. for any student interested). Bring #2 pencils, a photo ID and a calculator. Leave your phone at home (trust me you may enjoy the liberation of not being in contact with everyone, all the time).

2. AP Exam Registration: This Thursday – April 23. See you in the Commons at 7:45 a.m. or 9:15 a.m. Don’t be late for this very important date.

3. FRCC paperwork for concurrent enrollment classes is due on Friday, April 24 – this Friday. Why not take advantage of FREE college classes. I wish I got free college classes now…

Take Care of yourselves Falcons – the next few weeks are stressful, but let’s power through.
