-Keep to a routine. It's tempting to sleep in late but that will only make you feel worse in the long run.
-Complete assignments provided to you by your teachers on Schoology.  Check your email frequently. 
-Stay healthy - eat well, sleep regularly, and drink plenty of water
-Get outside every day for some fresh air!

 NCAA ELIGIBILITY CENTER:
Students who plan to participate in an intercollegiate sport at a Division I or II college must be registered with the NCAA. They must meet academic and SAT/ACT requirements to be eligible to compete. Registration to the NCAA may be accomplished any time after completion of junior year through senior year. The NCAA encourages online registration at http://eligibilitycenter.org. The fee to register is $50.00. Please read the requirements carefully. If your student did not attend Carlisle High School for all four years, you must request an official transcript from their former high school to be directed to the NCAA. Students must submit a transcript authorization release to the counseling center. Also, all academic courses at CHS do not necessarily qualify as NCAA core courses. If you have any questions related to the curriculum qualifications, please contact your student’s counselor.

ASVAB:  If you are in 10th, 11th or 12th grade and are looking for help making career decisions, then the ASVAB (Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery) may help.  Anyone can take this test.  You don't need to be entering the military to take the ASVAB.  This test will be offered for FREE at CHS each year in February. Registration happens in January in both counseling centers.
