Brag Sheets? YES!
What is a Brag Sheet?
This is where you list your accomplishments, challenges you have overcome, and plans for the future.
If you are a Junior, now is the time to create a brag sheet.
Sophomores, Freshmen, and middle schoolers, it is not too early for you to start!
Begin keeping track of volunteer hours, extracurricular activities, sports, accomplishments, academic honors, and anything else that will help build your resume/applications. You can do this using the link below, written in a notebook, on your phone, on your computer, wherever you feel most comfortable. However, if you do keep it electronically, make sure you back it up so that you do not lose it if something happens to your device. You do not want to forget any of the great things you have done.
Why is this important?
In order for your counselor to write a letter of recommendation for you, she needs information about you and what you have done.
If you have not already completed a brag sheet, please complete the link below. If you do already have one, please make sure to share it with your counselor (Last names A-L- Mrs. Entrekin, Last names M-Z- Dr. Garcia, ALL students- Ms. Watson).
