Seniors are reminded that they should notify the Guidance Office if they want their mid-year grades sent to a college or trade school. The Guidance Office has already sent mid-year grades to a number of colleges but you may wish to check if yours were sent.
Seniors planning to attend Penn State (any campus) may wish to nominate themselves for the Reverend Daly Scholarship which is worth $1,500 for Freshman year only. We can send up to five nominees, and the winner is selected by Penn State. Deadline to nominate yourself in the Guidance Office is this FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 21st!
