This Week's Announcements

Burris Laboratory School Counseling Center Announcements

May 21, 2015

Yorktown summer school information for high school classes is available.  Please come to the counseling center if you are interested.  

Graduating seniors are asked to come down to the Counseling Center so that we can return their senior profiles.  Also, seniors who are in National Honor Society need to pick up their graduation stoles to be worn with their cap and gown.  

Attention Junior 21st Century Scholars!  Junior Jump Start Workshops will provide you with information about your 21st Century Scholarship.  The 21st Century Scholars Program developed these workshops to help current junior Scholars get a jump start on their senior year of high school.  The workshops will cover your 21st Century Scholars senior requirements, the college application process, and tips for college success.  To register, please go to: www.scholars.in.gov/scholarsworkshops.  

Attention 8th-12th grade students, would you like to attend an interactive and informative session that includes defining your future and SAT/ACT preparation? If so, consider attending the College Prep Conference and College Fair. This fair takes place Saturday, August 22, 2015 in the Indiana Convention Center Sagamore Ballroom. Join the Center for Leadership Development as they partner with college administrators and business professionals to prepare students and parents for post-secondary education. For more information, visit http://cldinc.org/annual-college-prep-fair.asp.  

Seniors please give your scholarship dollar amounts to the Counseling Center.  We have tallied over a million dollars so far, and there are so many students we have not heard from yet.  Please do not forget to do this.  Help us represent Burris as a school where scholarship opportunities are plenty.  

Juniors, do not forget to give us your email addresses for the Senior Bulletins.  We sent out the May Bulletin last week, and used the parent email addresses in Powerschool to do this.  We want to communicate directly with the students, too.   Please take care of this so that we can provide you with important scholarship information each month.  Thank you.  

Last week’s question was our final question of the year.   It seems very fishy, but nobody answered correctly.  We hope you really sink your teeth into this question over summer break and come back in the fall ready to attack it again!

Thank you to Counseling Center assistants Miss Razor and Miss Skipton for working so hard to choose interesting and challenging questions of the week all year, and for having such a great time doing it.  Please let me know if you have any questions about these announcements.  Thank you for listening and have a fabulous week!
