Middle College Happenings

September


Middle College Parents,


Just a quick reminder that the MC teachers are in the faculty office in 5-112 every morning from 8:30 until class starts, ready to help students with MC assignments, college assignments, college applications, or whatever support they might need. Our new location is tucked away and off the beaten track, but we are still here and accessible to students every day.


Back to School Night/Parent Meeting

We will hold BTS from 6:30-7:15pm on Friday, September 26. Each teacher will provide a brief overview of her curriculum. Following our presentations, Julie DeBona is hosting a Parent Meeting from 7:30-8:30. We hope to see you there. You should have received the invitation from Chris Brandin earlier today.



College Readiness Workbook

This great little guide explains to students and families how to meet college eligibility requirements. It is exactly what we’ve been covering in our CCR classes. It includes a four year academic plan, financial aid information, a glossary of common terms, and links to online resources.




Juniors

The PSAT will be administered at Middle College on Wednesday, Oct. 15 during our MC class time. Chris Brandin will send out more information soon.

Seniors

Jen B has started college applications in the CCR class, and Halo is helping students decide where they should consider applying. You’ll notice that your seniors are getting a little stressed out about applications. We’re here to help :-)


Seniors still have several opportunities to take the SAT or ACT for college applications. The next opportunity to register for the SAT is Oct. 11 (registration due Sept 12 TOMORROW); the next opportunity to register for the ACT is Oct 25 (registration due Sept 19).


School Loop

All MC teachers are posting daily agendas for our classes — simply click on the calendars for the different courses and you can monitor what we are doing each day. If students are absent, they should check the calendar to see what they missed.

Guest Speakers

We’re still looking for guest speakers who are willing to talk to our students about their jobs, how they began their careers, and the pathways they took (education, training, etc.). If you, or someone you know, is able to talk to our classes, please let me know. We’re hoping to schedule guest speakers in our first time block (12:30-1:20)


Thank you so much, we are really enjoying the start of the school year.
