News from MMU Counselors
Happy spring! April is a busy time here in Student Services as we help our students set the stage for a successful fourth quarter while also working with them as they prepare for next year’s endeavors. We have now met with all students to build their course list for next year and will have schedules ready for Move-Up Day in June. This is also a perfect time for students to be thinking about summer opportunities. We have some great resources on this page and on the Naviance Student “Summer Opportunities” page. We also encourage students to consider an internship or job shadow experience. Please encourage your grade 9-11 students to meet with their counselor and start this conversation.
On April 9, sophomores will take the practice test for the ACT. Counselors will interpret and return scores later in the spring and talk about planning for life after high school.
If you missed the Junior College Night Program in March, please feel free to follow up with your student's counselor with any questions. Juniors should also be aware of some important upcoming test dates and deadlines:

Here are a few things we would like seniors to be aware of as they head into the final stretch of high school:
- Most colleges have a deposit deadline of May 1st. Don't be late! If needed, you may be able to request an extension.
- Please let us know about your college decisions by updating information in Naviance. This will also let us know where to send your final transcript.
- Send thank you letters to folks who helped you in the application process. Let your mentors and recommenders know where you are heading next year.
- See your counselor if you would like help making a plan for next year! We know this can be a busy, exciting, and sometimes stressful time of year so please don’t hesitate to reach out to us if we can help in any way.
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 oldest students whose permits are on file. We will begin to schedule students for Fall 2019 driver’s ed in late April and will schedule Spring 2020 driver’s ed in October.
Thank you, Kristen Barker, Toni Chandler, Chris Adams and Rebecca Sullivan
