Letter of Rec

If you need a letter of recommendation from your counselor/teacher/mentor for a college application, scholarship program, and/or any other activity, you need to complete a form via Schoolinks. Remember that the counselor/teacher/mentor writing your recommendation wants to do a good job for you, so it’s important that you follow all directions.
