News from MMU Counselors - April 2018
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. Here is a link to our listing of Summer Opportunities. 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. While you are on our webpage, take a look at our updated list of student/parent online resources!
This spring, counselors will be meeting with juniors in English classes to talk about post high school planning. If you missed the Junior College Night Program in February, you can find the power point on the MMU Student Services home page. 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:
SAT (register at collegeboard.org):
Test Date- 5/5 (MMU is a test site for this date), Regular Registration Deadline- 4/6
Test Date- 6/2, Regular Registration Deadline- 5/3
ACT (register at act.org):
Test Date- 6/9, Regular Registration Deadline- 5/4
Test Date- 7/14, Regular Registration Deadline- 6/15
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 also will let Mrs. Halvorsen 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.
