How Does My Student Participate in S2S?

Each school determines how students can get involved in S2S. Have your child contact their guidance counselor and ask for information. Your guidance counselor may not be the S2S sponsor but they will know who is. Speak with the sponsors about meeting times, future plans, and how you can get involved in the campus S2S program.
