Google Classroom
Parents, please encourage your student to join the School Counseling Google Classroom using classroom code: aem3frg.  We want ALL our students in this class! We have already put a lot of important information in the class and this is the best way for you to get announcements that we want to send out to SHS students.  We will use this as a platform to provide students scholarship updates and information for seniors, Naviance tutorials (videos) for all students, general announcements for all grade levels, self-care ideas during our time away from school due to COVID-19, and other activities. 
Please continue to focus on learning and education, but also take some time to focus on you and your family.  

Scholarships for Seniors
