Decision Day, Signing Days and Career & College Knowledge Night

Today is Decision Day! Make sure you notify your school of choice and also any schools that offered you admission. If you have been offered admission and are not going to attend, notifying the University allows them to offer your spot to another student that is likely on a wait list.

Now that you know where you are going to attend in the fall, come celebrate during Signing Days! Signing Days will take place May 13th, 14th, and 15th in B Bay during lunch. You must sign up at SignUpGenius by May 7th.

Our Signing Days will end with our Career and College Knowledge Night. This is a great time to interact with businesses and Colleges to gather information about potential careers. Attend the ECMC presentation in the lecture hall during one of the break out sessions to be entered into a drawing for a $1,000 scholarship!

 Need volunteer hours (or just like to help?) Mrs. Cameron is looking for volunteers to help with set up and take down for Signing Days and the Career and College Knowledge Night.
