Also, for students who missed the application window, but are still interested in enrolling in the ECE program, there is an add/drop window in the fall, but that comes with an additional fee. Please contact Mr. Wry in Guidance with any questions.

If you are a “techie” looking for a summer internship, the Town of South Windsor’s Information Technology has an opportunity for you.

A flier with information on hours, wages and how to apply is hanging in the Career Center.  

Reminder… Honor Roll Assembly certificates are in the Main Office. Stop by to pick up yours if you did not attend the ceremony. They’ll make a great Father’s Day gift!
