News from your MMU Counselors

May/June 2017

All Students:

·    As exams are approaching, please make sure you are checking in with teachers about exam review sessions, study guides or expectations around the final exam in each of your classes

·    If you are in need of any summer course recovery, please see your counselor so we can help you make a plan.

·    We have been updating Naviance and our Student Services website when summer enrichment opportunities come our way, so please check out what is going on locally over the summer.

Seniors:

We are so excited for all of you as you embark on a new journey after Mt. Mansfield.  We have all enjoyed being a part of your life for four years.  Please remember to update your Naviance account and let us know where your plans take you next year!

Rising Seniors:

We hope that by now you have taken some time to explore the career and college resources on Naviance Family Connection. We will be visiting you one more time this spring during English class to talk about planning for life after high school.  Over the course of the next few months and the summer, you might want to take the opportunity to get a jump start on your college planning process:

·    Before you leave for summer vacation, check in with teachers who you are considering asking for a letter of recommendation and see what their preferences and timelines are for writing letters.

·    Go to the "about me" tab in Naviance and fill out the "senior brag-sheet" (for students) or "a parent's perspective" (for parents).  These important surveys are required for students who may be applying to colleges which require a Counselor Recommendation (most 4-year colleges).  Your insight is essential.  We ask that you please consider completing these surveys before summer vacation, so that we may do as much writing in the summer as possible.

·    Remember to make an appointment with your counselor to start talking about your post high school plans.

·    We look forward to working with you through our “Senior Sessions” next year.  We will have 8 scheduled sessions during the school day, beginning in early September and running through the first week in October that will be used to support you through the college application and post-secondary planning process

Please stay in touch and let us know how we can be helpful as you look ahead to next year.  Have a fun and rejuvenating summer!

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 student’s 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 70 oldest students whose permits are on file. We will likely schedule Fall 2017 Driver’s Ed in April and will schedule Spring 2018 Driver’s Ed in October.
