1. Don’t forget to remind your parents that the Junior Parent Meeting is tomorrow, Thursday, March 20 at 7 p.m. in the Cafeteria. It is important for them to attend this meeting because in our community it is typically the parents who bear the major responsibility for financing your college education. We work with you and your parents the same week to promote discussions in your homes on the college selection process.
INTRODUCTION: Beginning today, Junior Announcements will be posted on the guidance section of the Hartley website every Wednesday through the end of the school year. These announcements will include information to help you make decisions with respect to college selection, summer study opportunities, ACT/SAT testing dates, College Open Houses, etc. This information is important to you so please make a concerted effort to read the announcements each week. Please note: It is the responsibility of the guidance counselors to communicate information to you; it is your responsibility to act upon it. Failure to do so can result in the loss of opportunities, including not meeting important deadlines like ACT/SAT registration dates.
1. If your parents were unable to attend the Junior Parent Meeting that was held on March 20, come to guidance and pick up a packet that was distributed to parents that evening. Enough copies were produced so that each family can have one. Very Important: There is a blue form in the packet that we would like your parents to complete and return to your counselor by the end of this school year. The form asks for information about you that can be helpful to your counselor when she writes your college recommendation letter. The blue form is entitled “Parent Brag Sheet.”
1. VERY IMPORTANT: This Saturday, April 5 is the Columbus National College Fair. It will be held at the Columbus Convention Center. The hours are 1-4 p.m. Register online at www.gotomyncf.com. Encourage your parents to go, too. They may want to attend the free workshop on Financial Aid and Paying for College that will be held during the fair hours.
