2. Transition to College Events!
The CHS Counseling Department is excited to bring you a BRAND NEW EVENT called Transition to College.
The very first night (September 23rd) of our three part Fall series "Transition to College' will be for parents ONLY. .
We will have a light dinner provided and daycare if needed!
3. ACT & ASVAB Fast Approaching!
Here we GO for Fall testing season! A few approaching dates to keep your eye on:
September 14th: ACT Exam! The September ACT will be hosted at Chadron State College. Registration for this exam is past deadline, HOWEVER, we will host another ACT exam at Chadron High School on October 26th! Registration for the October ACT is due by September 20th. To register you must go to www.actstudent.org and use a debit or credit card to pay for the exam. If you are a free and reduced lunch student see Mrs. Watson for a fee waiver!
September 18th: All juniors will take the ASVAB. The Department of Defense introduced the ASVAB (which stands for Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery) in 1968. It was originally designed to predict future academic and occupational success in military occupations. However, extensive research indicates the ASVAB assesses academic ability and predicts success in a wide variety of occupations.
The ASVAB CEP is used for career exploration and is given to high school and early post-secondary students. We will do a fun activity after taking the ASVAB to help predict and correlate ACT scores and explore possible strengths in certain careers. An enlistment version of the ASVAB is given primarily at Military Entrance Processing Stations (MEPS), and is used for enlistment purposes only. If a student is interesting in extra preparation leading to the ASVAB they can find it here!
4. CHS Schedule Change Requests COMPLETE
As we finish the third week of school we are officially SET with schedules and classes! Schedule changes past this point will result in a withdraw failure unless requested by the classroom teacher. Remember, three weeks in a block schedule class equates to 6 weeks in a 45 minute class, meaning we have gone over QUITE A LOT of curriculum and material in each course!
If this point you are concerned about courses the discussion needs to go through appropriate teacher communication, we are in it to win it!
5. Are You Having a Hard Time in a Class? With a Teacher? With a Friend?
What if we flipped the narrative, instead of adversity happening TO YOU what if it is happening FOR YOU. What if this hard time is happening for you to gain experience and confidence to grow STRONGER. Time to LEVEL UP CHS!
Readers, THANK YOU AGAIN for joining us! Whether you are from CHS or another school, If you find it worthwhile please continue to SHARE. THE. LOVE (and the link).
