Spots still open for visit to UNC and Aims

The counseling department still has a few spots open for a campus tour and information session to the University of Northern Colorado and Aims Community College. The visit is Thursday, November 17. The bus will leave Skyline promptly at 7:45 and we’ll be back by 2:45. Students need to bring a sack lunch (we won’t have time to eat on campus), a jacket and good walking shoes as the weather may be quite chilly and we’ll be outside for a period of time.

Sign up in the counseling office if you want to attend. Permission slips are required.

Reminders for the week of Oct. 3 – Oct. 7


1. Don’t forget to schedule your senior interview with your counselor. We need to know what you plan to do with your life after you graduate from our fine institution.

2. If you want to re-take the ACT, check the Calendar of Events (on this very blog) for the sign-up dates and test dates. Don’t wait too long – you want colleges to get this info quickly.


1. Sign up in the counseling office for the PSAT. The test is on SATURDAY, Oct. 15. The cost is $15.00 but if you can’t pay, please see your counselor. Deadline for sign-up is THIS Friday, Oct. 7. Additionally, we only have 110 tests, so if you don’t sign up, you’ll be too late.


1. The PLAN test will be SATURDAY, Nov. 15. Please bring your $15.00 and sign up ASAP. This is a great preview for the ACT.


1. Grades are important your freshmen year. No matter how many times your counselors tell you that you need to pass your classes, this seems to be the message that you’re not taking to  heart. You and your parents don’t wan to pay for credit recovery. You know how you don’t have to pay for credit recovery? Pass the classes the first time.
