UPPER SCHOOL NEWS
Jostens Rep on Campus
Senior Parents: Your students received a packet of information on ordering graduation supplies last week. Our Jostens representative will return to campus on Wednesday, October 23 at 3pm in Greenwood Commons to collect orders. Seniors must plan to order a cap and gown, but graduation announcements are not required. Senior parents are welcome to join this meeting if you have questions for Jostens. Additional details regarding the ordering process were also sent to senior parents by email. Graduation day is only 226 days away!
Each week, college representatives are visiting TNCS. Seniors, juniors, and sophomores are encouraged to attend the information sessions during Extra Help. A schedule of visits can be found on our website. Click here for a list of questions to ask college tour guides when touring colleges on your own.
