College Decision Sign-Waving is Wednesday, May 10th at 7:00 am in front of the school along Farrington. Faculty and students are invited to join us in promoting college and celebrating Seniors' college/post-secondary decisions. Students will need to turn in a permission form to the CCC and can make their signs here as well. We have poster boards, paints, markers, etc. If you have a group of students who are interested (maybe they need service hours?), I can also put a stack of permission forms in your box.
