Monday Sept. 29 – College Planning / Financial Aid Information Night – 5:00PM Cafeteria
Students from all grade levels, bring your parents to this event. We will have guest speakers discussing college admissions, financial aid and scholarships, and TN Promise.
Tuesday – September 30 – Scholarship / College Essay Lab - Mrs. Walteen Parker’s Classroom – 1st, 3rd, and 5th Blocks
Any senior who needs assistance with a scholarship or college essay is invited to come to Mrs. Parker’s room during 1st, 3rd, and 5th blocks this day. Students, your counselors have read hundreds of scholarship essays over the years and can assure you that essays submitted by students who have had a teacher proofread and assist with are more polished and well thought out. A well written essay greatly increases your chances of winning a scholarship and admission. Please take advantage of this assistance. If you are not enrolled in Mrs. Parker’s class this semester, please sign up in the counseling office so that it is known how many students are expected each block. A mobile lab will be available, but feel free to bring your own computer.
Wednesday - October 1 – College Applications Lab - Counseling Office – 1-5th Blocks
The counselors will set up a college applications lab in the counseling office. Students may come to the lab during the school day for assistance with college applications. In order to provide better service to students and gage how many volunteers are needed, you are asked to come to the counseling office and sign up for a time-slot. If anyone needs assistance with the TN Promise Application, you can be helped at this time. A mobile lab will be available, but feel free to bring your own computer. Also, students and teachers feel free to wear your favorite college shirt on this day to support College Applications Week!
