    Students who are interested should sign up in the notebook on the College/Career Specialist’s desk, for a visit that interest them. The student should write a pass (available inside the notebook). On the day of the visit, show the pass to your teacher and ask for permission to attend. The workshops will be held in the Counseling Center unless otherwise noted. We will take attendance and give the list to the Attendance Secretary to excuse your class absence.
