David Gysberts, Resource Counselor
Dear Parents of Junior Year Students,
We are already gearing up for your students as they approach their senior year and college application season. As part of the application process, your student's school counselor will be writing a letter of recommendation on their behalf. We have found that many colleges find our letters to be a valuable part of the application, and in an effort to provide unique information about your student that is not found on his/her transcript, resume or self-evaluation, we are asking for your input.
Please return this questionnaire to your student’s counselor when possible. We try to utilize the summer months to get a head start on our letters. Students are also being asked to fill out the “Student Self-Evaluation” as part of their clearance process. We are happy to receive these as soon as they are completed and would appreciate updates on summer opportunities come September.
Additionally, please note that we will have a senior parent meeting one hour before Back to School Night begins on the “Nuts and Bolts” of the College Application process. (Date yet to be determined.)
