Senior Parent Meeting

I want to invite you to an opportunity to learn more about graduation, applying to college, applying for financial aid and to answer any questions you may have. These meetings should last no longer than 30 minutes.

I will hold two different informational sessions during Parent-Teacher Conferences.  The first opportunity will be on Thursday, November 6 at 6:00 p.m. in room 306.  The second opportunity will be on Friday, November 7 at 10:00 a.m. in the Quiet Room of the Media Center. 

If you would prefer to meet with me alone, I am also available for that during conference times (or other arranged meetings).


Please RSVP to mdusha@isd740.org.  Thanks, I hope to see you there!

Updated Admissions Requirements

Did you know if you wanted to attend the University of MN (Morris, Rochester, Duluth or Twin Cities) that you will need to have four (4) years of high school math (Algebra I and higher) in order to apply?  This is important information if you were planning to take only the required three (3) years of math in order to graduate.  This is likely to start a trend of what will become the norm for many four year colleges.  You can read more about this new requirement by clicking here.

Seniors, Now is the Time!

As mentioned in an earlier post, October is College Knowledge Month!  Did you know that many of the MN State Colleges and Universities (MNSCU) are offering the opportunity to apply during October for FREE?!  That means this is the time to apply to many of the MNSCU schools you may be interested in.  That is a savings of $20 per application.  To do this, you just would do the online application (preferred method) and just DO NOT submit the application fee.

For a list of all of the colleges that are part of MNSCU that will accept no payment this month, click here.

See me with any questions.
