Welcome to the Bartlett High School College and Career page! I am excited about working with you and your student on preparing for your child's post-secondary plans. Along with the BHS grade level counselors, I strive to help all students reach their short and long terms goals, while recognizing their full academic potential.
In an effort to keep stakeholders informed, I send out a weekly newsletter to senior parents. If you are not currently receiving this correspondence and would like to be added to the newsletter, which includes information about dates/deadlines, scholarships/financial aid, college planning, and upcoming events, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Be sure to include your child's name, as well as your own, in the email. Additionally, I send out a monthly junior parent newsletter beginning in the spring to assist our 11th grade families in preparing for senior year and beyond. Please email me at the email address above to be included. Newsletters will also be published to my webpage each week/month. You can also check the BHS calendar for information regarding college recruiter visits, graduation announcement order deadlines, and other important meetings.
