Senior Corner

Ms. Iraheta's Google Classroom

Seniors, it is critical that you check my Google Classroom every day so you stay up-to-date on everything. 

University Applicants

Check your emails, check your portals, and do your FAFSA/CADAA!!

  • CSU's and some private universities are beginning to send their admissions decisions. Please make sure that you have set up your portals for each school. If you have not received instruction from a school on how to set up your portal, double check your spam inbox. Some schools may not have a portal for students to set up until you are admitted.

  • Check your portals at least twice a week! Not every admission decision is emailed to you (*cough cough* CSUF). 

  • Please inform Ms. Iraheta & Mr. Melgar knows when you hear back from school! No matter what, I am still proud of the hard work you put into your applications! You can either come see me, email me, or fill out this survey:

  • Make sure you complete your FAFSA/CADAA form. Schedule an appointment with Mr. Melgar if you have not started your FAFSA/CADAA, or if you need help completing your form. I will be announcing my upcoming workshops soon.
