Welcome Seniors!  It’s hard to believe, but here you are, at the end of your high school career!  I feel that the time has passed so quickly; and I’m thinking that this year will fly by as well with all the things you need to do as Seniors.  There is a lot for you to do and experience this year.  Enjoy  BGD, the prom, your friends and all the other high school experiences this year; but also remember to complete your graduation requirements, your applications for college, financial aid and scholarships.  I will be with you every step of the way, but so much of this is up to you.  Make the time for it---it will pay off in the end.
 
 Please visit this website often and check your emails for very important information that I will be sending you.  Come see me or email me with your questions.  I will also be in your classes as often as I can with information for you.
 

As your Counselor, I am very proud of your accomplishments so far, and I am very happy and excited to be with you for Senior Year! Continue the good work that you do; especially for your school and community.  Stay focused on your studies.  Make sure you keep up with all the deadlines that you will be given this year.  Your attention to details now will make a very big difference in your next steps toward college and career.   

 
Hang in there!  You are almost done!  Make yourself and your family proud this year.  Finish Strong Class of 2017!!
