So Many Things To Do
Griffin News is overpowered with things going on in Student Services right now. This week we are starting resumes for the freshman class. They are all assigned a sophomore mentor who will help them formulate their initial resume and update it periodically. The sophomores and juniors both have upper class mentors to help them with updating as well and the seniors will be polishing their's this month. This is an ongoing process that will continue throughout the four years here in order to help organize information for college applications and careers following high school. For some, it is overwhelming but navigable once the process has been started. I also give them some websites that help prepare them for college and career. Ask them to show you their accounts and how to navigate these sites.
All the college application deadlines are approaching. Please continue to finish your applications and let me know of where your transcripts need to be sent. I can easily send them through Parchment, so you may order them through that service as well. Continue to update your spreadsheets. It helps all of us to stay organized.
For those of you getting presidential interviews and notifications, please let Mr. Scholz and I both know. I will help with the paperwork for any presidential interviews and Mr. Scholz likes to recognize your accomplishments.
Finally, for the juniors, you need to start college visits soon. Examine the campuses and see what appeals to you. Look for your next home for the next four years.
