SENIORS & JUNIORS: Navy Nuclear Power Program Presentation Wednesday, Jan. 16
Petty Officer Christopher Marlow will be in the Career Center on Wednesday, 1/16 from 10:00 am to 11:00 to discuss the Navy Nuclear Power Program.
Nuclear technicians, power plant operators and subsystems specialists are responsible for keeping vital Naval submarines and aircraft carriers running. These highly trained, hands-on professionals perform the complex technical functions that are at the core of sub and carrier capabilities. Their job involves everything from operating nuclear propulsion plant machinery, to controlling auxiliary equipment that supports Naval reactors, to maintaining various electronic, propulsion and weapons systems. Beyond offering access to professional credentials and certifications, Navy technical and operational training in the field of nuclear operations can translate to up to 77 credit hours toward a bachelor's or associate degree through the American Council on Education. Participants may also continue their education through opportunities such as the Navy College Program, Tuition Assistance, and the Post-9/11 GI Bill. Program participants would also qualify for an Enlistment Bonus of $30,000.
Sign up in Naviance to attend the presentation, or see Mrs. Shaffer in the Career Center.

SENIORS: Alumni Advisory Day
On January 4th, thirteen alumni from the NMHS Class of 2018 will be coming in to talk with seniors during Advisories. Seniors can hear from former students who have completed the college application process and transitioned to university. Seniors will also have an opportunity to ask questions.
2019-2020 Course Selection
School counselors will kick off course selection during advisories in mid January. Students will use the portal to view their teacher recommendations and select their courses.
If students have not accessed their student portal account to date, they will receive an email with their user ID and instructions on how to access it. If students logged in previously but do not remember username or password, they should email their counselor.
Students must use their student portal account in order to sign up for classes. It is not available through a parent’s account.
If you want to take a course different than what was recommended, you must pick up a waiver form from the counseling office and submit it to your counselor before the change can be made. Students in grades 9 and 10 will meet with their counselor individually in advisory. Students in grade 11 will receive an appointment to review credits for graduation, finalize course selection and discuss post secondary plans. An appointment time was emailed and mailed through regular mail. Parents are invited to attend.
To plan for their meetings, students should review the Program of Studies available on our school’s website, under Guidance Department on the left hand side, scroll to the bottom where you’ll see Program of Studies. They should take a look at course prerequisites and if a course requires a teacher recommendation. Students should also choose backups for their first choice of electives.
