Recording from Senior Information Meeting

Today I held the senior meetings every hour.  While I understand that being there in person is more ideal, here is a recorded version so if you student missed the meeting they are able to watch and learn from the video.

Please do two things before starting the video:

1) Go to StudentVue -> Course History -> Unofficial Transcript (top middle blue bar on the page)

2) Go to your email and find the email from me that I sent today sharing a google folder called "Senior Information".  In that folder there is a PDF of the powerpoint presentation called "2022 Senior Presentation"

Having these things will make it easier to follow along.

Conversations with your School Counselor #1

Below is the first video that I have created with the intentions to help seniors and parents with the college and graduation process.  Hopefully breaking all of the information I share with seniors at their meeting (which is tomorrow!) will be helpful.  As always, reach out with any questions.

Like we never even left...

It is great to be back and starting the 2nd week of school.  It's now a routine and like we never even left!

Juniors and Seniors: If you are taking college level courses, please be sure that you are checking your MState eservices to ensure you are registered to receive the college credits from the college.  Instructions were emailed to you and your parent last week.  This information, if incorrect, is due to me tomorrow.

Starting this week and next week, I will be meeting in small groups with the seniors to go over college and senior information.  I will also send out a short video clip every couple of weeks (and include it on my blog) about things I talk with the seniors about that parents may find helpful, too.

Have a great week and contact me with any questions.

Recordings from today's Registration Information Sessions:

All paperwork and a copy of the recording from today's registration information sessions was emailed to all parents and grades 8-11 students.

Please check your email if you need the information because you are a distance learner or you were absent today.  If you are a parent and did not receive the email, please ask your student to see their email.  If you still cannot locate the email, feel free to email me with your student's grade for next year and I will send you a copy of the email (

Thank you!

2021-2022 Course Registration Time is Coming!

On Monday I will be having information sessions during school hours for all 8-11th graders to talk about registration and course selection for the 2021-2022 school year.

I sent an email to all parents and students yesterday explaining how the process will work.  After the sessions are complete I will email a recording of the information sessions along with all paperwork.  I will also post that information on this blog.

Course selection is due by 8am on Friday, April 23.  Students must enter their requests into StudentVue.

As always, please contact me with any questions regarding registration!

Melrose Senior Scholarships

 This is just a friendly reminder that most of the local (scholarships just for Melrose HS seniors) are due by March 24, 2021 to Audrey.  Please take some time to look over the guidelines and applications (on the right side of this website).  

We are so lucky that so many local businesses and organizations are offering these financial opportunities to our seniors year after year.  Last year these businesses and organizations gave away around $30,000 to seniors!

Contact me if you have any questions!
