Attention Juniors! If you are interested in being a SENIOR MENTOR for next year, please sign up in Ms. DiBlasi’s office. Senior mentors help freshmen transition to high school by helping with the first day of school and visiting assigned homerooms. Please note that you will be asked to purchase a senior mentor t-shirt before the end of this school year. Thanks!
If you and a partner would like to run for Student Council presidents for next year, please fill out an application found in the auxiliary office. In the past experience on the student council has been required, however, in the last two years with COVID and its implications towards clubs and activities, applications are open to anyone. The Student Council leads the student body, affects the school climate and serves as a liaison to administration so experience is helpful. Please see Ms. DiBlasi and Mr. Burke with questions.
