Documentation of the visit must be presented to the 1st block teacher on April 21.  If the college visit does not have a standard form for documentation, a signed note on letterhead will be sufficient.  
*Visits conducted prior to April 19 must occur on a day outside of the regular school day. Students will not receive an excused absence for a previously documented college day.

2.   Career Visit – The student will visit a business of his/her choice.  This visit may take place any time between now and April 19.

Educational/Historical Site Visit Students interested in the rich educational and historical learning opportunities in North Alabama may want to visit attractions such as the Space and Rocket Center, Burritt on the Mountain, Huntsville Museum of Art, etc. Documentation of the visit must be presented in the form of a ticket stub or brochure from the site to the 1st block teacher on April 21.

Being a high school student can be stressful, and finding time for everything can be quite a difficult task. How do you find balance as a high school student? Between studying for classes, sports, and extracurricular activities, how do you incorporate free time for yourself? What activities/hobbies do you enjoy outside of school? How can you alter your current schedule to allow for more play time, down time, and family time?

7.  AP Study Session – Students currently enrolled in Advanced Placement courses may use this day in preparation for upcoming AP exams.  A study group will be formed by the AP teacher and a form will be provided for documentation.  Study groups will be held on the school campus and will occur between 8:15 - 12:00. Bus transportation home will be available for students. If a sack lunch is needed please indicate on the online registration form.
