Seniors will have a mailbox in Counselors office. When I get college or scholarship information that is relevant to your student, I will put a copy in their mailbox. They are responsible for checking their mail box regularly (once a week would be great). Plus this gets more traffic in my office so I can get to know the students better.
I am very excited about helping Burlingame students learn about and access college/continued education information. I look forward to students taking an active role in their future plans and helping them along that path.
