ROAR Time- Help with College Applications

Beginning on September 27, the counselors will be available every Wednesday during ROAR Time to help students with their college applications.  Seniors who are not requested by any teachers during ROAR Time are invited to join us in room 247, which is a computer lab.  Later in the year, we can also help with the FAFSA and scholarship applications during this time.  If a student is requested by a teacher for ROAR Time, that is where they are required to be.
