Reminders for Seniors

A few friendly reminders for Seniors:

1. TODAY is the deadline to register for the Dec. 10th ACT test. You may register by going to: www.actstudent.org If you plan to apply to a four year college you must have this test completed as part of your application. Do not let this go!

2. College applications should be completed BEFORE Thanksgiving to maximize opportunities for scholarships and special programs. MANY colleges have a Dec. 1 deadline for scholarship consideration. Your transcript must be sent directly from the guidance office. You can have your transcript sent by signing the request log in the guidance office. Remember to download any college prep or counselor forms required by your college and bring them to the guidance office when you request your transcript. NOV. 18th is the last day to request a transcript of you want it sent out before the Thanksgiving break. Please don't wait until the last minute!

3. The CHS Guidance Department will host a financial aid night for parents of seniors. The meeting will take place on Monday, Dec. 5th at 6:30 p.m. in the lecture hall. A college financial aid specialist will talk about the procedure for filing the FAFSA, and will discuss the different ways of financing your child's college education. Guidance counselor Lynne Carmean will talk about local scholarship opportunities.

4. All seniors should have received a letter stating what classes on your current schedule are needed for graduation. Remember that failing one of these required classes could keep you from graduating. Finish the trimester strong!
