NCWIT Application Help Take Two!

Hey ladies!

So you weren’t able to come last Monday to room 235 with Miss Woz for some application help?  No problem! We’re going to be at it again this Monday (Oct. 26th) only with some EXTRA help.  Mrs. Feuer (English) is going to stop by to give us some advice and help on how to best express ourselves in our answers to the application questions.  It’s important to take an English essay writing approach when you are writing out your answers to the application questions.  With so many applicants, we need to find ways to stand out, and this can best be accomplished through our writing!

The application deadline is November 4th.  Let’s try to surpass the number of winners from last year!

Over and Out!
