JANUARY IS NATIONAL THANK YOU MONTH
This month of January 2016, I am encouraging the students to take a moment to write a "thank you" note to someone who has helped or given time to them:
a fellow student who worked with them on a project,
a teacher who stays after school or during lunch for extra help,
a coach or teacher who listened,
a friend who is there for support
a teammate for a great leadership
I have gathered a supply of blank note cards, thank you cards, and message cards that students may take, write and send/give to that individual. Please encourage your student to take advantage of "National Thank You Month" 2016.
PSAT scores are now available online for any 9-11 grade student who took the test.
You need to go to
for the student to either a. sign in if they have a college board account OR
b. sign up if they need to start one (please make sure user name and password are kept for later use)
Once they have done this a student should either see the scores or need to "ADD SCORES". If there is an ACCESS CODE needed, please email me with student last name/access code in the message and I will send it out. There is a unique one for each student.
The hard copies of results will be sent home once they are here in late January, but the online scores are interactive for the student.
Junior Class to College Fair
Juniors can "register" to make it easier to maneuver the fair easier:
1. Go to www.gotomyncf.com where students will answer a few questions.
2. After completing registration, print barcode ID and bring it to college fair
3. Colleges can scan to access your info, saving you the time of completing cars.
