Life in Mongolia
On Wednesday, Monomoy exchange student Naranjargal Bold gave a presentation to her US History class about life in her home country of Mongolia. Students learned about Mongolian society, food, cultural celebrations, and people, and about Narangn's life at home. She taught us some great facts about the diverse lifestyles and geography of "Land of the Eternal Blue Sky": (it has both 260 days a year of sunny days, and the coldest national capital of any country) and the class learned how to say "hello" in Mongolian. We learned about the diversity of lifestyles in Mongolia, from the many nomadic peoples of rural areas, to urban areas filled with culture, technology, sports, and education.
Thanks Naranjn for a great presentation, and for answering student questions about life in Mongolia.
Naranjn's year here is sponsored by AFS, and the Future Leaders Exchange program, a competitive merit scholarship for study in the US sponsored by the State Department.
SHORE Program makes impact on our community
The SHORE class is making a huge impact on our community. This group of young men and women are breaking all sorts of barriers and giving back to the community with internships at Cape Cod Ballet Theater, Yarmouth Veterinary, CapeAbilities, LoTide Farm & Nursery, and Shark Bytes Craft Fairs.

Celebration of Excellence: December 1st
Selected students and families are invited to attend a brief ceremony honoroing those students who have demonstrated excellence with MCAS and Advanced Placement exams. Invitations will arrive home via the mail.
Field trip to Cape Cod Community College: December 6th
Students interested in Cape Cod Community College should let their counselor know. On December 6, there will be a field trip to CCCC and students will meet with admissions representatives and financial aid representatives.
Cape Cod Community College and its Pathways Program is offering on-campus support on December 6th from 9-1:00.
Please email Mr. Burke at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in checking out 4c’s on the 6th. There will be transportation and we will be meeting with admissions representatives and the financial aid office at the Hyannis campus. You are not committed to attending 4c’s if you go to this event.
The Pathways Program is set up to help students explore, apply, and prepare to attend 4c’s next year if that is something that might be of interest to you. Meeting with the college on December 6th does not mean that you are committing to attending next year, but if it might be in your plans, you should check it out.
The Pathways program puts you ahead of others when it comes to selecting and placing into classes next year, and provides you with an opportunity for extra scholarship money in addition to financial aid support.
Wishing you health and safety,
The School Counseling Team
