JHS Student/Family Weekly Update

Week of November 16th: News, Links & Updates

Did you know that your JUHSD student(s) have access to a one-stop portal to for all their college and career exploration needs including college applications (Community College, CSUs, and UCs)? That’s right, their CaliforniaColleges.edu account makes filling out all those applications much more convenient and easier than doing it alone. You can also signup for an account to view what colleges and careers your student is exploring along with information on financial aid for college.

We’d like you to check out the JUHSD College and Career website and click on the Family Information drop down about how CaliforniaColleges.edu can support YOUR STUDENT during their High School years with the managing deadlines, keeping track of information, and college and career readiness.

CaliforniaColleges.edu has lots of tools that your student(s) can take advantage of, and some are highlighted throughout the website. Please explore the website as it pertains to you and your students(s) plans for after-high school and learn about how CaliforniaColleges can help you!

Reach out to your counselor if you have any questions, of course.

Happy Friday Jefferson staff!

I just wanted to inform you all that JCYC will be having a CSU panel on Monday December 9th, 2020 4:00pm-5:00pm. We previously had this set for Wednesday of this week but have changed the date. We would appreciate if you'd share this event to your students . Especially to those who are interested in Cal State San Luis Obispo, this is a great opportunity to get more information and personal insight about how the university is like. This is also great for any student who is considering majoring in journalism or law and society. Those of you who attend will be eligible to participate in the Raffle for a $20 DoorDash e-gift card. Below is the link to register for the event as well as more information in the flyers. I have attached a Guided Questions PDF of possible questions for the students.

Our events will be with:

· Jennie Le: December 9th, 4pm-5pm, Journalism Major & Law and Society Minor attending at CSU San Luis Obispo

I have attached a Guided Questions PDF of possible questions

There is a google form that they can fill out to register! There's also a QR code to scan, and it will direct them to the form as well!

If there any questions or concerns, feel free to email me at this email or SJ Marte at smarte@juhsd.net or smarte@jcyc.org


I also wanted to mention that Personal Statements Workshop is still on. I know many of your students are working hard on their college applications and part of that can possibly mean working on PIQ's. That is why I wanted to give them extra support by providing this workshop. We will be focusing on editing, reviewing, and hopefully finalizing your personal insight essay. Students can always register with the link below or email me back at this email address to make an appointment.
