Thoughts from Counselors

No Tricks: October was a Treat

October was a sweet month filled with events, awards, celebrations and candy! Below is a quick glimpse into our October.



Tutors of the month

We started the month off with the recognition of three outstanding superhero tutors! Mikhail Rybalko, Lindsey York and Mark Galvan were acknowledged for their contributions to the TECHniques Center.

Our incredible team of Master Tutors planned a “Pie Your Tutor” fundraiser. Students, tutors and counselors payed $2 to pie a tutor and $3 to pie a counselor. In total $160 was raised and donated to Refuge Services through the State Employee Charitable Campaign.
