News from MMU Counselors
Winter has wasted little time settling in this year and we have been greeted with an early dose of shoveling, cold temps, and winter driving fun (half of you just groaned but the other half cheered!). For many of us, our thoughts have turned to the approaching holidays and upcoming New Year. In Student Services we often see an increase in the number of students looking for support this time of year. The end of the first semester is quickly approaching and this can bring added stress for already busy students. In addition, holidays can bring added financial stress to families as well as thoughts of loved ones who have been lost. We are fortunate to be in a community that so wonderfully supports our students and we value your partnership in this. Please do not hesitate to give us a call and let us know if there is someone you are concerned about.
Best wishes for Happy Holidays and a fantastic start to 2019!
Kristen Barker, Toni Chandler, Rebecca Sullivan, and Chris Adams - MMU School Counselors
Some important notes:
PSATs: Juniors who took the PSAT in October should be receiving access to their online score reports from CollegeBoard on approximately December 10. Within the next few weeks, counselors will be meeting with juniors in their English classes to discuss scores as well as some life-after-high-school topics. It might be helpful to know that with students’ PSAT scores comes free and personalized SAT test prep through Khan Academy. Students will receive info on how to access this when we meet with them.
Burlington and Essex Tech Center Visits: In January, tenth grade Biology students will attend informational presentations put on by our two Tech Centers. Students will be given the opportunity to visit a program of interest in person at one or both technical centers. Permission slips (with dates) will be handed out during the presentation and must be turned in to Student Services prior to the visit date.
A note about Driver’s Ed: Each year we get many questions about how to register for Driver’s Education at MMU. The first thing students need to do in order to get on our Driver’s Ed list is to bring their permit to Student Services to be copied. This makes one eligible for the class. Each semester, we schedule the 60 oldest students whose permits are on file.
