Hello!

We've made it to the last scheduled newsletter for the school year! It may be summer but DFS will still be around to support you.

Based on the feedback from last week's poll, we have decided to send the newsletters every other week during the summer. As you will see below, there are still many post-secondary prep resources offered throughout the summer! So keep reading Next Level News to stay up to date on what's happening next.
