Announcements

Elevation Essay Scholarship: Is your student interested in attending Elevation next June? Three students will be selected to attend for their first time free with the Elevation Essay Scholarship! Essays must be submitted by December 1. Details and sign-ups are available in Homeroom.

New Student Mentoring Program: Our Student Body Leadership team has created a new initiative called the Student Mentoring Program. Burgers of more than one year can sign up to be a Student Mentor. Being a Student Mentor includes helping new students learn their way around our online systems, find their way to student activities, and succeed on their assignments, plus also just being their friend! New students can sign up to be assigned a Student Mentor, and Student Mentors may be assigned more than one new student. Click here to request a Student Mentor, and click here if your student would like to become a Mentor.

Did your student miss Inspiration Hour last week? Visit Homeroom to watch a recording of the Burger Inclusivity Bonanza!

Daniels Scholarship closes this Sunday! High school seniors in Colorado, New Mexico, Utah, and Wyoming may want to visit the Daniels Fund website to apply for the Daniels Scholarship Program! The application deadline is this Sunday, November 15, at 4:00 PM MST.
