Helpful tip regarding college applications
Please remind students to work on response-style questions in their college applications or Naviance survey on a separate Google Doc. There have been reported instances of students keeping the page open too long and losing work completely. Thank you!

At the parent info night, a parent brought up a good idea of being informed about college events in the Berkeley area. I will upload dates/info in the following spreadsheet<https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1vHQD6x3OedUT-bWPoB57U4HLA12XRzdcBiyoawEdTIM/edit?usp=sharing>.
