Keep an eye out for a tshirt contest for our BHSECQ Day of Action coming soon!! (Hold onto your designs!)
(Year 1 Students) The official CTO process starts next semester when you will be paired with a CTO advisor but until then, I wanted to make you aware of what's written there and the ways in which you can get involved in the CTO process early!
1. Save the Date! Year One Student and Family CTO Kick-Off - Wednesday, November 11th - 6:00-7:30 in the auditorium.
2. Check out the Calendar for Upcoming Fall College Rep Visits for Y1's and Y2's or see the calendar outside the CTO. Year Ones' are STRONGLY encouraged to attend these visits in their free periods! All visits take place in the College Transfer Office in the Back of the Library (it's bigger than it looks and we have lollipops). These are a GREAT way to get a head start on the admissions process!
4. Sign up for Text Messages from the CTO: Class of 2021 (Y1) Students and Parents/Guardians - this is the BEST way to stop on top of CTO related announcements!
5. Finally, I can always use help in the CTO sorting through materials, putting up posters and updating records. Stop by if you are interested! Must be detail-oriented and be able to commit to two periods a week.
You can always find these links in my emails at the bottom!
