Students working hard on senior projects

Class registration for 2009-10 is under way. Counselors have met with the current freshmen, sophomores and juniors and collected their registration forms.

Any current Carson High student who has not registered for classes must make an appointment with their counselor to do so. Counselors will return to the middle schools on Wednesday to collect the eighth-graders’ registration forms.

All eighth-graders must remember to return their forms on Wednesday.
