MMHS Counseling Newsletter November 2020

You did it! You've made it through 1st term. Now is a great time to evaluate how you did and make some new goals for second term. Counselors will begin the Sophomore PCCR (Plan for College and Career Readiness) process online starting November 2nd. I've included a link below for students to follow step by step. If you have any follow up questions, make sure to contact your counselor.

Seniors, make sure to complete your college admissions and fill out your FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid). This is a great time to get those important items done toward your next steps for college. You can refer to our MMHS Counseling UCAW page for more information.

In December, we will send out information regarding semester class changes and what that process will be. Most likely all class changes will be made through an online class change form just like the beginning of the year. Due to a high volume of class change requests now at the term, I wanted to remind students and parents that we do not do class changes at the term breaks.
