Counselors Reach Out With Coffee, Visits — The SRHS school counseling department hosted its final coffee talk of the school year April 4, with parents of freshman students receiving information on dual enrollment and summer enrichment opportunities. The event was well attended, and parents were able to meet the school counselors and have their questions answered. In addition, there is a warehouse of information on dual enrollment and early admission on the school’s Edline home page under the School Counseling tab.
Counselors also finished visits to the two feeder middle schools — Osceola Creek and Western Pines — to register eighth-grade students for their freshman year. The event went smoothly, and the student audiences were excited about their move to high school in August.
