Burris Laboratory School Counseling Center Announcements

March 27, 2015

The Class of 2015’s Owl board is ready to decorate in front of the Counseling Center.  Seniors should come down to decorate and post their owls.  You can write down the colleges you have been admitted to, if you haven’t made a decision about where you will go for sure, or you can write just the college you will be attending.  If you do not plan to go to college, fill out an owl listing your postsecondary plans, like a job or military or something else.  We hope that by the end of the spring, ALL of the seniors will have put an Owl on the board.  We want to celebrate you!

This is just a reminder that sophomores are not taking ACCUPLACER this year after all.  See Mrs. Maugherman with any questions.  

The Martin Luther King, Jr. Dream Team Foundation is also sponsoring the “Making Dreams Happen” Scholarship.  This scholarship is a one-year, $1000 prize in honor of Bea Moten-Foster.  The submission deadline for this scholarship is March 30th.  Pick up an application in the Counseling Center.
