Conversations with your School Counselor - Recording #2

Today's recorded topic is on how to apply to a college.

One thing I did not cover is how you can find a college's application.  The best thing to do is to google the name of the college and application.  So for instance, I would google "Grand Canyon University Application" and a link to the application should appear in your search results.

If you have any questions, please let me know.

Thank you!

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.
