Good Evening Tuscola Families!
February and March are busy times for all of us as we prepare for registration for next year.
Our current 10th graders will be meeting with counselors in the media center starting on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday of this week. (Meetings on 2/17, will be held in the cafeteria) to discuss future planning, classes for next year, the registration process and to answer any questions. Students will report to the media center based upon their homeroom teacher. Students should consult their email and their Counseling Center Google Classroom for the class of 2024 for the time their homeroom should report for counseling sessions. It is very important that students attend this required session.
