They have the power to become the most successful generation ever. We will be sharing a college bound tip each day this week. 

Here's Tip #1: Keep your grades up and study hard! Beginning in middle school, it is important to learn and implement good study habits that you'll carry with you throughout your educational career. See you counselor for more information. To help you get college on your mind, we're encouraging everyone to wear their favourite college shirt tomorrow, Wednesday April 24th.
