News from your MMU Counselors:
We are off to a great start this fall in the Student Services office. We are getting to meet new 9th grade students, reconnecting with returning students, helping students sort out their schedules and helping the seniors with their post secondary plans.
Counselors will be meeting with all 9th grade students through their Health and Fitness classes during the month of October. We will talk with students about how the transition to high school is going and help them set personal and academic goals for the year.
All 10th grade students will be taking the PLAN test on October 16th from 8:30-12:30. This is a half day of school and transportation will be provided home after the test is over. The PLAN is the precursor to the ACT and assesses students in four areas: English, Math, Reading, and Science. There is also a Career Interest Inventory built into the test that is beneficial for all students to take.
11th grade students have the opportunity to take the PSAT on October 16th from 8:30-12:30. Only juniors who are signed up for the PSAT need to come to school on the 12th. Transportation will be provided home after the test is over. The PSAT is the precursor to the SAT and also qualifies eligible students for the National Merit Scholarship Program. Counselors will be speaking to all 11th grade students in their social studies classes to inform them about the PSAT. The registration deadline for the PSAT is Wednesday, September 25, 2013. The cost of the test is $14.00 (cash or check made payable to Mt. Mansfield Union High School).
Counselors are in the process of meeting with all 12th grade students during their English classes to go over the college application process. Parents, please attend our “Life After High School” presentation on Thursday, September 19th at 6:30 pm in the MMU library. Also, please consider attending the VSAC sponsored workshop on Financial Aid/Paying For College at MMU on October 29th at 6:30 in the Kiva.
