DATE CHANGE: For our 11th grade students, you are invited to participate in the Writing a College Essay Workshop.  This participatory workshop is designed to help high school students write compelling college application essay(s). Workshops are offered Tuesday 5/26 at 2:45 PM and Friday 5/29 at 11 AM. Please RSVP to Tarah the Wednesday before the workshop and we'll send a google invitation to you.

The college essay will not get you into a college; it may, however:

    • tip the scale when compared to others of equal qualifications
    • provide a “sticky” recollection of your application for admissions
    • show your heart and soul as a prospective student

As a result of this workshop, you will:

Ô Understand what makes you stand out, strengths and values

Ô Be familiar with two types of essays

Ô Refresh writing style and skills

Ô Target a topic for essay writing

Ô Create an outline and key paragraphs (hook or conclusion)

Ô Know resources for essay review

Senior Updates:

To the class of 2020:

We have made a decision and your graduation will be on Saturday, June 13th, 2020. The final details on what this will look like and sound like are still being worked. We will be sending out communication about caps and gowns in the coming weeks. If you have any ideas for your graduation please send them to me via email. Please remember that we need to follow the guidelines that were outlined by the Secretary of Education and the Vermont Department of Health as we plan for graduation.
