Student Service

Anthony Galati and Tyler Irlmeier completed a project for DECA called the Community Awareness Project. The students had to come up with a topic they were passionate about and find a way to bring awareness to this topic. Anthony and TJ chose Teenage Mental Health during the Pandemic and they wanted to raise money for a local mental health hospital, CenterPointe. The gentlemen raised $405 through an online fundraiser and all of the donations will be donated to CenterPointe Hospital. Great job Anthony and TJ!


NHS collected two full cars worth of items including robes and slippers, paper products, toys, diapers, baby wipes, and winter gear. Supporting Our Lady's Inn as a community was a powerful initiative with extremely positive and supportive feedback. NHS looks forward to supporting the organization in the future and continuing to encourage their mission and help them in their means. Thank you to all of you for making it possible and spreading the word to our entire community! Pictures below from the collection day.

ACT Issue

LHS students have reported difficulty in finding "Liberty High School" on the high school list when creating their ACT accounts. We are working to correct an error on their website with not being able to find our school when searching by city. In the meantime, you can find Liberty by searching for the school by zip code. Liberty's zip code is 63367. It is CRUCIAL that you add Liberty to your account, otherwise we will not be able to access your scores or add them to your transcript for college admissions and consideration for scholarships.

You can register for an upcoming ACT at www.act.org/bts. Upcoming ACT test dates: Feb 6, Apr 17, Jun 12, Jul 17.

Also, just a reminder that if you are having a hard time getting registered for the ACT, or the only test centers that have seats available are far away, there is another college admissions test option: the SAT. Every college in the US accepts both the ACT and SAT (there is no preference). Liberty is an SAT test site. You can register for an upcoming SAT test at www.collegeboard.org. Upcoming SAT test dates: Mar 13, May 8, Jun 5

Early College

The Early College Application is now available, due in February, and is attached below for all current 10th-grade students.

For those of you who plan to apply, please register to take the February 6th or April 17th ACT at www.act.org. To be eligible for admission into the Early College Program and into St. Charles Community College, you will need a 3.0+ GPA and an ACT score on your transcript by the end of the school year. (We have ACT practice study guides in the counseling office or use the practice information on the ACT website.)

If you have questions about the Early College Program, please review the attached PowerPoint presentation and feel free to ask me questions.


Thank you,

Mrs. Gerringer

Attention 11th Grade Students & Families

The Missouri state law requires all students be immunized against vaccine-preventable diseases. The Meningococcal Vaccine (MCV4) is required for all incoming 12th graders.

You must provide proof of immunizations no later than AUGUST 15th, 2021!

Call your child’s medical provider to verify that your child’s immunizations are up-to-date. If your child has received the required vaccine, please send proof to the nurse’s office as your doctor does not routinely send this information to us.

If your child needs the MCV4 vaccine, schedule your appointment today and after your visit send proof of the immunization to the Nurse’s office!!

The vaccination can be obtained from your pediatrician, a walk-in clinic, or the county health department. If you need further resources on how to obtain this immunization for your child please do not hesitate to contact me.


Questions:

Call Nurse Bridget
