The month of November is Apply to College Month for the state of Georgia. Winder-Barrow is celebrating Apply to College Week November 18-22. Each day we’ll have events for seniors to bring on college awareness, increase overall understanding and celebrate their ability to apply to the college/university/tech school of their choice!
Monday, November 18 : College Tee Day – Faculty and staff will join in with students to wear their college gear of choice. Students are encouraged to ask teachers and staff about their post-secondary experience.
Tuesday, November 19: College Student Panel* (8am, Cafeteria) – This event has become a staple event for this week. Recent WBHS graduates, come back to share their experiences to the current class of seniors. This is any eye opening time as the students share real accounts for what they’ve learned since being in college. *Sign-up is necessary on the google form to attend. https://forms.gle/6aViLGXbU6V38mXL6

Friday, November 22: “I Applied” Day* (Outside the Cafeteria) – Today concludes the hard work of our seniors. We’ll set up a photo booth of sorts outside the cafeteria and allow students to take pictures for themselves and our social media outlets promoting the schools they’ve applied to thus far.
