Welcome back SCHS students and parents.  We're excited for a new year.  We have some great additions to our counseling center this year.  All our wonderful counselors are returning this year, and we've added Miss Cirillo who will be here one day each week running some skill building groups for our students.  Please contact us if you're interested in participating in some of these groups. 
We have lots of useful activities coming up this fall.  On September 14th from 6-8 p.m. we will be participating in our College and Career Night at Dixie State College/Burns Arena.  All state colleges as well as a huge number of post high training options will be in attendance that night.  It is a great opportunity for Juniors and Seniors to have a chance to discover options available to them.  Please plan to attend.
Sophomores:  We will be giving the PLAN test (a pre-ACT test designed to help Sophomores be ready for the ACT) on October 5th.  This test will be given during school hours.  If you are interested in taking this useful test, please pay the $15 fee to the finance office before September 7th.  Any Sophomore who plans to take an AP class during the junior year is required to take this test.
Juniors:  We will be giving the PSAT test on October 12th.(This is a pre-SAT test which helps with both SAT and ACT tests, and more importantly is required for National Merit Scholar Eligibility.)  The cost for this test is $15. This fee must be paid to the finance office before September 23rd.  Good luck future National Merit Scholars!
Seniors (and other students):  Utah High Education Assistance Authority (UHEAA) has announced their "Super Short Essay Contest."  This is a contest for students to win one of two $250 scholarships.  You can visit UHEAA's facebook page for details: http://www.facebook.com/uheaa?sk=app_190322544333196
Keep checking back for more information, and have a great year!
