College/Career Planning Sessions: Mandatory for all seniors
Wednesday, August 30th and Thursday, August 31st in the IMC
Counselors will be conducting large group sessions for seniors to review the college application process, career options, Common App, transcript request and letter of recommendation requests. ALL seniors must attend one of these important sessions! Students will not be excused from class to attend these sessions, and should go during their Time Release or during their assigned lunch.
Session Schedule: Attend only one session
Blocks 1 & 5: 8:15am to 9:00am
Blocks 2 & 6: 9:10am to 9:55am
Blocks 3 & 7: A lunch 10:45am to 11:15am / B lunch 12:25pm to 12:58pm
Blocks 4 & 8: 1:03pm to 1:48pm
Common App Important Information: Students completing the Common Application should not enter their counselor’s information into the “Recommender” section of the Common App until after they attend one of the information sessions. Counselors will discuss how IB and Traditional students enter information differently.
Individual Senior meetings with Counselors (Senior Interview): At the large group session, seniors will get information about how to schedule individual appointments with their counselor. During these 30 minute individual meetings, counselors will focus on answering questions, gathering information to assist with writing recommendation letters and go more in depth about post-secondary options. Students will not be able to make an individual appointment without first attending a large group session. Appointment times will begin on September 5th and run until September 20th.
Senior Planning Worksheet (Survey) on Naviance: Seniors will be required to complete a survey on Naviance prior to their individual senior meeting. This survey will open on August 30th. This important survey will assist students with their post-secondary planning and will be instrumental in helping counselors write recommendation letters.
Parent Brag Sheet (Survey) on Naviance: Parents/Guardians will have the option to log in to their student’s Naviance account and complete a survey that will provide counselors additional information with which to write recommendation letters. This survey will be open on August 30th. The Naviance log-in is the same as the student’s Infinite Campus log-in.
