Guidance News

Welcome to the 2017-2018 school year!

Be sure to check the College Visit tab to find out what colleges have reps coming to MCHS. Sign up in guidance or speak to Mrs. Olson.

Counselors will begin meeting with seniors on 9/6 to review progress towards graduation & post-secondary plans.   Every senior will receive the "Class of 2018 Post-Secondary Planning" booklet.  Parents - be sure to review this valuable resource with your student.

Freshman, Sophomores & Juniors will be testing on 9/13, this is a SIP day.  The students will complete a practice SAT (or practice PSAT) to familiarize them with standardized testing.   Seniors are encouraged to use this time to go on a job shadow, visit a college, or perform community service.

A Parent Forum is scheduled for 9/28 at 6pm in the MCHS Auditorium.  Mrs. Olson will be welcoming a Financial Aid specialist to help parents prepare for college.  All parents & guardians are welcome!

Junior & Seniors may sign up to take the ASVAB. This test is used for military entrance, career exploration and identification of student strengths. Taking the ASVAB does not commit a student to enlist in the military. Sign up is on the bulletin board outside of guidance. Testing is free. Testing date is 9/26.

The first SET (Student Enrichment Time) is 9/6. It is mandatory for ALL students.
