As you can imagine, September is very busy in the College and Career Center with individual appointments, group meetings, recommendation packet workshops, college rep visits, and lots of questions. Seniors have been informed that September 25 is the deadline to give rec packets to teachers and advisors for all applications that are due before Christmas. We have held three workshops so far and have three additional workshops scheduled to help seniors put together their packets. Because letters of recommendation can play a significant role in the application process, it is important that students provide complete information and give recommenders sufficient time to write their letters. Last year our teachers and advisors submitted hundreds of recommendations to colleges on behalf of the senior class!
One way for parents to help in this process is by completing the Parent Statement on the Teacher Rec Survey on Naviance. This is your opportunity to "brag" about you daughter and her gifts. Your insights can help teachers and advisors as they write their recommendations.
