National Signing Day Event

Today, we celebrated National College Signing Day!
To honor all of our students' post-secondary plans, every senior was invited to the school counseling office during a half-hour window to sign and decorate their personalized pennant. We had balloons, admissions counselors were invited, and everyone had a great time! Click through the slideshow below to see how proud our seniors are, and try to zoom in to see how much fun they had decorating their pennants.

Congratulations to everyone!
