Welcome back to school!!  I hope everyone enjoyed their summers! This is a reminder that any student who earned SSL hours this summer needs to turn in the SSL Verification Form to me by the last Friday in September, which is September 30th.  My office is located in the counseling office.  Students can hand it off to me directly or leave it in a bin outside my door that is marked SSL Forms.

If you still have questions about Student Service Learning after reviewing the information on these pages, talk to your counselor, or contact Ms.Sorensen, by e-mail, or in person, in the Counseling Office.
