Are you interested in attending the Model College of Hair Design? If you are, see me. Model College sent two scholarships that can be used by any of the Melrose Area High School seniors.
On Tuesday myself, Ms Pottratz, and 42 juniors and seniors went to the college fair hosted by the MN College Admissions Counselors at Halenbeck Hall at St Cloud State University. The students seemed to enjoy the time visiting with the representatives and I was again so proud to have such polite and well rounded students representing Melrose HS!
On Thursday, October 27th during 1st-4th hours I will be giving the PLAN test to all of the 10th grade students. The PLAN program helps 10th graders build a solid foundation for future academic and career success and provides information needed to address school districts' high-priority issues. It is a comprehensive guidance resource that helps students measure their current academic development, explore career/training options, and make plans for the remaining years of high school and post-graduation years. PLAN can help all students—those who are college-bound as well as those who are likely to enter the workforce directly after high school. The test is given only once and since it is not required, there will not be a make up day for the test.
Lastly, there are numerous college admission representatives that will be coming to Melrose HS to talk about their college. This is an opportunity for students to talk with the rep, find out more about the colleges, ask any questions they may have, and start gathering information to help in making a college decision. Sign up for a pass in the guidance office on the bulletin board. To see a list of colleges, check the announcements or the bulletin board.
