Latest News from Grades 9-12
Welcome back to another school year! In September I am busy stopping by the classrooms to greet the students and give a short presentation on what I do at school. Here's what else I will be doing this fall with the students.
10th grade will start to explore various careers. We will join 1,200 area students at the annual Career Expo at SMSU in Marshall on September 26th. Students will have a chance to try hands-on activities, partake in a campus tour, and compete in a game show about careers in SW Minnesota.
The 10th graders will also take the Pre-ACT test on October 17. Students will receive results on careers, their skills, and college readiness.
I talked to the 11th grade students briefly about making some college visits, and visiting with the representatives that visit our school. We will get more in depth with this information during 2nd quarter. Look for a Junior Newsletter to come out at the end of Septebmer. For more info on this, check out the Career and College planning page!
12th grade will be jumping right in to planning for their future. Fall is an excellent time for campus visits and filling out college applications. Seniors and their parents were given a Senior Newsletter with valuable information. Keep this handy and refer to it when necessary.
Our parent financial aid meeting was held on September 10th with a great turnout. You can find more information on the Financial Aid planning page!
