This Week's Announcements

Burris Laboratory School Counseling Center Announcements

April 24, 2015

Many students have been asking about summer school classes.  Summer school offerings were sent to parents via Powerschool earlier this week.  Interested students should turn in completed summer school registration forms to the front office after getting a signature from Ms. Chupp or Mrs. Maugherman. 

Seniors, please summarize the dollar amounts of scholarships you have been awarded and share that amount with us in the Counseling Center.  Even if the scholarship is for a school you will not attend, it still counts as scholarship money awarded and we want to add it to our list.  Thank you to those students who have already done this.  

We are creating a distribution list of email addresses for next year’s senior bulletin. We need all current juniors to come down to the counseling center and write down their preferred email address.  The Junior Bulletin will be emailed to everyone who provides us an email address at the end of this month.  So far, only five juniors have given us their email addresses.  Thank you to Annabeth Turner, Caitlyn Nickens, Jenny Hatton, Connor Kurek and Andrew Hammons.  We still want to hear from the rest of the juniors.  

Current 7th & 8th graders who are interesting in pursuing a career in law enforcement should considering applying for the Indiana Sheriff’s Association Youth Leadership Camp.  It will be held June 23-26 at Pine Creek Camp in Pine Village, Indiana.  For more information or to pick up an application, please visit the counseling center.  

Any junior who has demonstrated exceptional performance in the sciences may want to apply for a paid summer research experience with Ball State Physics and Astronomy faculty.  Students will receive a stipend of approximately $1000 for six weeks.  There are 2-3 positions available, so please apply!  Candidates can visit www.usaeop.com/aeop.htm, click apply now, and select REAP in the drop down box to apply.  Applications are due by Wednesday, April 29th.  Any questions can be addressed in the counseling center.  

Ancilla College is having their Access Ancilla Day on Tuesday, April 28th, 12-3pm for any students who are interested in visiting campus, having lunch, or talking to professors.  For more information about the college or the Access Ancilla Day, students can visit www.ancilla.edu/programs.  

Juniors and seniors interested in Miami University in Oxford, Ohio may enjoy applying for the school’s Summer Scholars Program.  It is a two week summer program for high-achieving juniors and seniors.  The program helps students gain an advantage to the college application process and those students who choose to apply to Miami will receive priority consideration for merit scholarships and the university’s premier academic programs.  Anyone interested should inquire about a letter of recommendation from Mrs. Maugherman or Ms. Chupp.  

We are still receiving information about summer programs for students of all ages.  If you are interested in getting some college credit or participating in academic programs this summer, please visit the counseling center and check out our Summer Programs Folder.  

The answer to last week’s question of the week was C, 50 years old.  As a funny coincidence, the winners this week are all from the first grade: Lucia Donahue, Eleanor Groves, Noble Holland, Israel McCrory and Josiah Smith.  Congratulations to all of the winners.  Please come to the Counseling Center to claim your prize.  

This week’s question is a science question:  

“In which household liquid will pearls melt?”

A.    Clorox

B.    Vegetable oil

C.    Windex

D.    Vinegar  

And finally, next week is the last week at Burris for the school counseling interns.  Please stop by the Counseling Center to say goodbye and good luck to Ms. Lamb, Ms. Sachs, and Mrs. Wright.  We will miss them!  

Please come to the Counseling Center with your answer to the Question of the Week and any questions about these announcements. Thanks for listening and have a great week!‚Äč
