Student Advisory Board Application: If you would like to apply to be part of the SAB (who serve as a conduit between students and the administration by representing the student perspective in matters pertaining to the student handbook) you need to submit this application student application google form.

Students may begin asking for recommendations this coming week. Applications close at midnight on May 2nd, so both your application and teacher recommendation must be submitted to Miss Boyd by that deadline. 

Talon Staff Applications: It is time to select the dedicated, intelligent, and creative group of students that will lead The Talon through its 14th year. Carefully read and complete the application and fulfill the other requirements on or before Monday, April 28, 16:00.
