Junior Parent Night
We will be hosting our annual Junior Parent Night on Thursday January 31st from 6-8 pm in the cafeteria at Parker. This is a night designed specifically for juniors and their parents to learn about the college process. Deb Merriam will start the night talking about Parker’s unique transcript and how we convey your academic records to colleges. I will then talk about the process, including testing, letters of recommendation, Naviance, the Common Application and more! There is a lot of information in this session and is a great kick-off to getting juniors and their families thinking about college!
Seniors – Updating Naviance
As seniors are wrapping up their applications to colleges, I would like to remind you to update your Naviance account with your decisions. I will also be stopping into your senior seminars in the next couple of weeks to make sure your accounts are up-to-date!
Financial Aid Awards
Seniors and their parents should be on the lookout for their financial aid awards. These can be sent out any time from now until April 1st. Students usually have to log into the portal for each individual school to see their aid, however a lot of schools will also send a hard copy through the mail!
