Select teachers will be available during 8th period synchronous time on Tuesdays and Fridays. Seniors in the Advanced Learning Program have already had the one on one session with Ms. Calvert or Ms. Boness. Traditional  Seniors were asked to fill out a survey to let us know if they are interested. The majority of Seniors have already had one on one meeting with their English teacher- however, this opportunity will allow more seniors to access individual support if desired.  Students are also encouraged to use the College Essay team channel as a resource. the Alicia Williams, school counselor at Interlake is organizing these sessions, please reach out to her directly with questions or concerns.
