Counselor’s Corner

Hello. Everyone! It is crazy to think that the year is 1/4th of the way over. I feel like we just started last week! I have been working hard with the Seniors on applying to colleges and now some of them are even beginning the scholarship process. We have taken them through resumes, college registrations, cover letters and references, job applications, and now we are going through a mock interview process. My hope is that by the end of this class with them, they will be well-prepared for life after high school.

The Juniors have been working on studying for the ACT and taking many practice tests. I am very excited that we will be hosting the ACT this year, and hope this will help increase many of their scores by being in a familiar environment. As prom sponsor, I would also like to commend them on their fundraising so far! Each class member has participated in some way, and they are very eager to work and raise money to have a successful prom.

Just a few other notes to be made:

  • SGA will be sponsoring a Halloween costume contest and we have started working on our ideas for the rest of the year. We will be selling pre-orders on calendars through Thanksgiving Break and hope this is a successful fundraiser.
  • Beta Club Induction will be held November 2nd. All inductees and their families are invited to stay for a reception at the completion of the ceremony. I would like to congratulate all of our new members and our students in general. We are inducting 23 new total members between the Junior and Senior Beta clubs.
