Senior Advisory Visits
MSHS School Counselors have been and are continuing to visit all Senior Advisories this week and next week to deliver a presentation and discuss the College Application Process. Seniors are learning how to request transcripts and letters of recommendation via Naviance-an online post-secondary planning tool. This is the only way MSHS will send transcripts so it is important that all seniors check their email for a copy of our presentation and links to important resources.
