Mrs. Anderson's Counseling Newsletter
Trying something new!
I am your student(s) counselor at Plymouth High School. I wanted to try or "Pilot" an idea of creating a monthly or quarterly newsletter to send out to families throughout the school year. This is my first go at it, so please be patient with me, but your feedback along this journey is much appreciated.
I have also ventured into the world of Twitter - you can follow me @MrsAndersonPHS
On that note - have a happy and safe holiday season!
While college applications are rolling out - scholarships are starting to roll into our office.
We have a scholarship board located in our office that has local scholarships advertised and paper copies of the applications available. A list of scholarships is also available online and is updated as soon as new scholarships are made available. See link below.
Also Seniors that are planning on going to college in the fall - make sure to fill out your FAFSA after January 1st!
SAT is coming.... It is all new this year, so its a bit unpredictable from our end. Khan Academy is supposed to have a partnership with College Board to help students study. That might be worth a Google search.
Coming up in January, Sophomores will have a Park Counselor present a lesson in their American Literature or Reading Writing Workshop class. The lesson will allow students to explore Career Cruising and use this resource in future class registration.
A new thing for Freshman will be the exams coming up. Final exams, or mid-term exams for some classes, will take place the last week of January. Start preparing now and use your time wisely. Exam days are half days; January 26th, 27th and 28th.
