Rising Seniors – Still needing a Physical Education Credit?  Want to avoid having to go to Evening High or Summer School? The Public Service Academy is offering a PE credit from Monday-Thursday from 7:30 AM – 8:30 AM.  The course will be for one semester.  Mr. Rizer (Criminal Justice I) will be the instructor.  If you are interested, please see Mr. Gayman or Mr. Buhrman.

Student Assistance Program: If you are concerned about a friend’s use of drugs or alcohol, Tech High has a confidential referral program called the Student Assistance Program.  You can make an anonymous referral by placing your concern in a referral box that’s located in the hall outside of the counseling center. A group of teachers and staff who have been trained to handle your concerns will take it from there.  No one needs to know where the concern came from.  It’s a great way to help a friend who is struggling.  If you ever need help or want more information, you can talk to a member of our team: Ms. Nichols (Cosmetology I), Mr. Vanorsdale (Counseling Center), Mr. Gery (Resource Room), Mrs. Kaper-Dick (SSL Office across from the main office) or Mr. Buhrman (Assistant Principal).
