This coming week starts the day-long campus visits for applicants for next year. This means two things. First, it means that adult and student visitors will be coming through our hallways. Be aware of this in terms of what you say and where you say it! Keep it positive! Second, it would be wonderful to have people say hello and welcome visitors whether it is an applicant with a 9th grade host or a parent taking a campus tour. Help them feel what a welcoming and friendly school we are!
