Elementary and middle school students, the study list for this year's Spelling Bee is now available in the Counseling Center. The Spelling Bee will not be held until January, but you are welcome to get an early start on studying. More details about the Spelling Bee will come later.    

Seniors who were unable to attend College Information Night should check with Mrs. Maugherman to get any extra handouts that were provided that night.  Also, if you did not receive an electronic copy of Mrs. Maughermans presentation, please come to the Counseling Center so we will know to send you one.   

PSAT 2015 will be administered at the Student Center on Wednesday, October 14, from 8:00 am to noon.  All sophomores and juniors are registered.  More details, including a handout guide to preparing for PSAT, will be coming soon.   

The NCWIT Award for Aspirations in Computing honors high school women who are active and interested in computing and technology, and encourages them to pursue their passions. This multi-tiered competition includes recognition at the national level at the local level. Any U.S. high school woman in grades 9 through 12 is eligible to apply.

Attention juniors, Burris has been inviting to participate in the annual Richard G. Lugar Symposium for Tomorrow's Leaders on Saturday, December 5, 2015.

The Delaware County college fair will be held at Muncie Central High School on Thursday, October 8th at 6:30.  This is such a convenient way to get information on lots of different colleges and universities all at once.  Students of ALL ages are invited!
