8th Grade Seminar Visits: This week, Ms. Carlson started visiting 8th Grade Seminar Class rooms. Students learned more about her role as a school counselor, started getting comfortable with Naviance and utilizing it for career and college planning, and Ms. Carlson got to learn fun facts about students! It was a great way to start the year off! Ms. Carlson will be visiting 8th Grade Seminar Classes throughout the school year. 

 

9th Grade WIN Session: During WIN 3 on September 22nd, 9th grade students got another introduction to Ms. Carlson and a jump start on Career Planning. 9th graders completed the Career Interest Profiler on Naviance, a college/career readiness program, and reviewed graduation requirements at MWHS. If you have a 9th grade student, you should ask them what their results showed on the Career Interest Profiler.

 

12th Grade WIN Session:  Ms. Kampa and Ms. Baumann met with senior students last week to discuss several items including: post-secondary planning timeline, college applications, sending high school transcripts, FAFSA/financial aid process and different ways that students can access information and help throughout the process.  A copy of the presentation was sent to all senior students via email and is available below for easy reference.
