The College Counseling Office, along with the class of 2012, has survived two milestone days in the college application process, November 1st and 15th—early application deadlines. Today I realized yet another reason why it is so useful being a laptop school. After school, there was a spontaneous gathering of seniors in my office. Laptops in hand, they gathered to “submit”. After one last review of their materials and lots of words of encouragement for one another, in unison and solidarity, there was a collective college application submission. Immediately following the momentous acts were celebratory cheers and high fives. It was a moment that could not have been manufactured or planned and I’m so glad I was there to share it.
The class of 2012 is on its way!
