Next month we will begin the course scheduling process for the 2019-2020 school year. Earlier this week the Academic Advisors met with all students in a brief group advising session in which students were encouraged to begin thinking about the level of courses that they wish to take next school year. Between now and Christmas break, students should notify their teachers if they wish to move up or down a level in a particular course. Throughout the month of January, students will have a one-on-one meeting with their advisor in which they will review their course recommendations and select courses for the coming year. All courses will be approved by parents before the course schedule is finalized.
In freshman group advising sessions this week the semester exam schedule for December 19-21 was discussed. Students identified best practices for an effective study plan and time management during this busy season.
Families of seniors: if you have not already filed the FAFSA, you are encouraged to do so immediately. If you have questions about the FAFSA, please contact the Financial Aid Office of the school that you are likely to attend. The FAFSA website is www.fafsa.ed.gov.
Now is a great time for seniors to begin applying for scholarships. Remember to utilize the Scholarship List and Scholarship Search functions in Naviance Student. Every student has her own Naviance account. If parents would like to create an account but have lost their registration information, please email your daughter’s academic advisor. Please note that most scholarship committees update their application materials after January 1.
Seniors are encouraged to apply for the $1,000 David Kreuter Memorial Scholarship; deadline 1/31/19. See Naviance for details.
Coldwell Banker Real Estate is offering a scholarship to a student who is battling cancer or who has endured cancer during her childhood.
