Senior Conferences in the Fall
Junior Conferences in the Spring

I wanted to let you know that I am in the midst of doing Senior Conferences and I had the opportunity to visit with Matt on November 14, 2014. We discussed the following:

• High School Transcript, Credits, Schedule and Grades
• College Application Facts – Matt said he has not applied yet, but wants to go to TTU. He said that he would probably also apply to WT, and ASU. I suggested that he get these done by Christmas.
• Scholarships – I sent home sheets with websites that will be helpful. TTU scholarship deadline is February 1st. I am not sure about the other two places, but I believe it is a similar time frame.
• Financial Aid/FAFSA – For students beginning college in the Fall of 2015, FAFSA needs to be filled out and completed AFTER Jan. 1, 2015. Both students and parents need to request a pin # before beginning the process.
• Letters of Recommendation
• SAT/ACT – he said that his SAT was better than the two ACT. TTU will take the one that looks best.

I hope you and Matt will have an opportunity to visit about where he is in this process and what to do next. Please feel free to contact me with any questions.

Wishing you the best of luck!

Peer Observations
This summer 8 FHS staff attended a PLC conference together.

Matt Cmerek – “One presenter asked a room of about 200 people – How many of you come from a campus where the PLCs meet weekly?” Including myself, there were 8 people.
“At the end it really boils down to this for me…the relationships that we create with our students. Checking in on them when we can…monitoring their grades…attendance…and see how life is going.” - Heath Simpson
“One of the things we do best at FHS is to work to ensure learning for all students whether an assignment is late, a student has a rough home life, a student speaks a different native language, etc.” – Cale Bridges
An extended period of time for academic intervention. Students can complete make up work, retake tests and receive individualized tutoring from staff, student teachers and NHS students. On average there will be 130 students assigned to MMA weekly.
