Attention Seniors: Mrs. Yahner and Mrs. Anderson will be organizing two upcoming field trips at the end of March. We will be touring the Adult Education Programs at the Greater Altoona Career and Technology Center on Tuesday, March 26 from 9:00 to 12:30. Most of the adult programs are 9 months in duration. The second field trip will be a day-long trip to Penn Highlands Community College in the morning and then South Hills Business School in the afternoon on Thursday, March 28. This is a great opportunity for students wanting to see the schools, and also for students not certain about their future plans after graduation. Interested seniors can pick up and return permission slips in the Counseling Office at the high school. All forms are due by March 2. If not all of the seats are filled with seniors, juniors will be invited.
See your counselor with any questions.
