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.

· University of Idaho (Seniors)

UIdaho Bound is June 14, June 21, and July 12. Students can sign up online at www.uidaho.edu/events/uidaho-bound or call 208-885-6163 for more information. 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.

· LCSC (Seniors)

208.792.2313 or sign up online at www.lcsc.edu/advising/new-students-star/. Students must be tentatively admitted before they can sign up.

  • 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.

  • 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. The last recommended time to take a college entrance exam is October of their senior year.

· 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. Please encourage your student to come see me.

 

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.

 

Sincerely,

Shannon Morris
