FROM THE COUNSELOR


This is a busy time of year for Seniors. As part of finalizing plans for next year, it is time to make sure everything is completed and in order to begin school in the Fall. Besides registering for classes, housing needs to be taken care of as well. Be sure to add these important events and opportunities to your To Do list! Juniors should be preparing for the SAT and starting to make some decisions about their post-secondary plans.

· LCSC (Seniors)


* April - General scholarship award letters will be sent to students. Students must sign and return all documents to the Financial Aid Office within two weeks.
* More award letters may be sent when new awards are offered, so please remind your students to check their WarriorWeb account to look for updates on their awards.

For students who need to sign up for a student advising and registration (STAR) session, please have them call Career and Advising Services at
208.792.2313 or sign up online at http://www.lcsc.edu/advising/new-students-star/. Students must be tentatively admitted before they can sign up.

· University of Idaho (Seniors)

If students are unable to attend this for any reason they should call 208-885-6163 and set up a college visit to include meeting with their advisor and registering for classes.

Check VandalWeb to accept financial aid and also check Vandal Mail for any information on what to do next.

  • Scholarships (Juniors & Seniors)

The April scholarship lists are now available and posted on the bulletin board. This is the time to be applying for outside scholarships. Some of these scholarships are also available for Juniors. Scholarship information can also be found online at the school website www.sd287.k12.id.us in the counselor section. The April list is also attached to this email.

· SAT School Day (Juniors)

The School Day SAT will be given on April 10, 2018 to all juniors. Students are already registered! Students can start preparing now by going to https://www.khanacademy.org/sat and setting up a study program.

  • ACT/SAT (Junior)

If students need to take or retake the ACT or SAT assessment, these college entrance exams are given every couple of months. For the ACT you can find more information at www.act.org and for the SAT at collegeboard.org.

· Junior Review

Juniors should meet with me before the end of the school year to discuss post-secondary plans and determine what steps to be taking in their senior year to prepare for the future.

In addition to meeting with students, I am also available to meet with parents. Please feel free to contact me at any time during the school year if you would like to discuss your student’s needs, have concerns, need information, or need further resources.
