Did you review your schools requirements and saw you need a Letter of Recommendation from your Guidance Counselor? 

If so, and you want to request a letter from either Mr. Duke or Ms. Pinheiro, they have individual Google Forms for students to complete. For all other counselors, make an appointment with them and bring your resume.
