SCHS Newsletter Sept 17, 2017
Dear BOBCAT Nation,
The Sage Creek Staff and PTSA teams have consistently joined forces to offer great College & Career Readiness experiences, and to ensure each one of our graduates able to articulate responses to the following 3 questions is paramount:
1. Who am I?
2. Where am I going?
3. How will I get there?
Beginning this month, our Counseling Team initiated college visits from a diverse set of universities. CLICK HERE to view the presentations available
to students in September. Additionally, our Career Chat series kicks off with a focus on Military Careers this Thursday, September 21, at lunch, hosted by PTSA.
I urge all students to take advantage of these great informational events.
