For Thursday, April 3, 2014
 “L” Day

·      As the weather warms up please check your hemlines.  Shorts and skirts can be no shorter than the tip of your longest finger at your side.  If you can “cup” the hem of your shorts or skirts, they are too short!  Don’t make us be fashion police!

·      Course Selection forms were due on March 28th, 2014.  Students will NOT receive a 2014-2015 schedule until the Course Selection form has been signed by a parent and turned into guidance.    

·      Summer Opportunities: check the College/Career webpage for summer programs in business, accounting, test prep, architecture, materials science, engineering, and more. Deadlines are soon.

·      There is a Women in Computing Careers event on Monday, April 7th from 5:15-7:15 at Pellissippi Hardin Valley campus in the Goins Auditorium. Students are encouraged to attend and hear about computing and information technology with a special focus on why careers in computing are a great choice for women.
