Monday, Nov. 15: Mind and Money Monday

  • Seniors: Report your completed FAFSA/TASFA or complete your digital opt-out form! Then look for some scholarships.
  • 9th – 11th: Take a personality or career aptitude quiz (I like “Career Cluster Finder” best) in Naviance (log in through your SSO).

Tuesday, Nov. 16: “Back to Your Future” Day

  • Wear a college shirt & ask TWHS faculty, your folks, and your older friends to tell you about their college experiences!

Wednesday, Nov. 17: Plan a pathway

  • Complete a short survey during Advisory
  • Juniors and seniors can visit with Lone Star Honors College in the CCC at 9 am (register on Naviance)
  • Army recruiter Staff Sgt. Javier Veliz will be on campus during all lunches (with chin up bars!)

Thursday, Nov. 18: Dream big

  • Dress up according to your childhood career aspirations (Stop by the CCC in 251 to show off your awesome ballerina/astronaut and firefighter/train conductor combos!)

Friday, Nov. 16: Gratitude and the Greater Good

  • As we gear up the holidays, we encourage every student and faculty member at TWHS to share gratitude for one another by submitting a TAE or SAE. After all, we are on this educational journey together. Let’s celebrate each other!
