You will receive other forms of communication throughout your remaining months at Hall HS regarding important events like senior prom, senior outing, graduation, cap and gown ordering, to name a few.  This will likely come from others not in our office so pay close attention to emails and daily notices. Typically these notices are included on the Hall website and Daily Notices.

It's hard to believe that summer is only a few weeks away!

We recently held a "Spring Ahead" breakfast event for sophomore parents. Those in attendance had a chance to engage in discussion about trends we're seeing in the college admissions world and talk through strategy as to how to best support your current sophomore child in the months ahead.

Between now and the end of this school year, counselors will continue to meet with sophomores individually to recap on the year and to trouble shoot any conflicts that may arise with their course selections for next year. The summer is a great time for students to relax and have fun (first and foremost), but also a great time to explore future interests via various summer programs, internships, and employment. We encourage students to utilize their school counselor and the college/career center as a helpful resource for learning about various summer enrichment opportunities.

Hello Freshmae! You're almost there! In about five weeks you'll officially be sophomores. Let's think back to the beginning of the year when you set goals for your freshman year. Have you already achieved them? If not, there is still time!

Make sure that you are working with your teachers, doing your homework and starting to study for final exams. Practicing these habits will result in a strong finish to the school year. Remember, studying 15 minutes a night in addition to your homework will pay-off in June when you are taking final exams!
