College 101 – Lunch with Finch

Come join Mr. Finch in the guidance conference room for this college series.  College 101 is open for any junior or senior.  For sake of time, please bring a sack lunch and meet him in the conference room.  Mr. Finch has recently sent 2 daughters to college and is willing to share his experiences with you during lunch!  Each session will be repeated during each lunch.  Come sit with Mr. Finch during your lunch period and learn about the college process.   (To make sure we have enough space, please sign up in Guidance by Wednesday, the day before we meet.)  Any questions, see Mr. Finch.
