The lab is open: Need help with Gradpoint? Or just extra time to work on it? The lab across from Student Services is open from 2:30 to 4 p.m. Mondays through Thursdays. Ms. Davis (math) and Mr. Miller (history) are staffing the lab (Ms. Davis usually on Mondays and Wednesdays, Mr. Miller usually on Tuesdays and Thursdays), so students can get help understanding math and history Gradpoint concepts.
Juniors, keep these in mind: As you begin planning for a busy fall as seniors, review these links to potentially helpful resources: our college resources for juniors tips; the junior meeting form; presentations from College Readiness Night on Navigating the Admissions Process and Financial Aid; and our Summer Opportunities page with dozens of available programs. We cannot meet individually this spring with every junior, but we do meet in the fall with seniors whose prospective colleges require letters of recommendation.

PTSA volunteers organize and staff the event; families of the senior class pay for related expenses such as food, decorations, invitations, postage and personnel.

Congratulations! Junior Suzanna Murawski received the 2018-19 AIFS Foundation George and Nell Kahdy International Study Abroad Scholarship. She plans to use the scholarship to help fund her travel to Buenos Aires, Argentina, this summer. The scholarship is named for the founding principal of Enloe High School, a trustee of the AIFS Foundation for more than 40 years, and his wife, who led the first group of students to travel abroad with AIFS in 1964.
College visits: College admissions representatives will now come to the Student Services Lobby during the lunch periods to meet with prospective students. Check our Google Calendar below for dates, which will be updated throughout the year. (They're also available on the bulletin board in Student Services.) Please pay attention to the times of the visits; most colleges don't stay for both lunches. Information is sent to the 'LoeDown and scroll, and also will go out via Remind (to students who are signed up for it!). These visits are for students only.

Why speak with a counselor? We’re here for you. Whatever concern students have — from academic to personal to career — you can come to your counselor and find a place where you can share your concern and get help in addressing it. Students can make an appointment request for any time of the school day. Your counselor will try to meet the request. We do try to make sure we talk with you during times when it least affects your class schedule.
When you come from class to see a counselor, be sure to let your teacher know about your appointment and have the teacher fill out a hall pass so you won’t be marked absent. We are also willing to schedule meetings before or after school. You can reach us through these links:
A-De: Ms. Greene
Di-Jh: Mr. Small
Ji-Muk: Ms. Dechant
Mul-Shem: Ms. Saviello
Shen-Z: Ms. Kearney
Please know that if you feel you’re in an emergency and need to speak with someone, you’re always welcome to come to Student Services. Depending on who is available, you may speak with your counselor or another counselor. Feel free to contact us throughout the school year. Student Services is not just our name — it’s our mission!
