Welcome, Juniors!

Wow! You’re juniors. Two years have passed by so quickly and you are getting ready for another great year, junior-senior prom and all of the fun that goes along with having two years under your belt! Don’t forget your mission and the reasons why a solid high school education will serve you well. Look below at some reminders:

 

PERMIT/LICENSE VERIFICATIONS
Students need to request a permit/license verification at least 3-4 days in advance from the front office. Students must have No Pass/No Drive permission form completed, signed and on file in GHS’s front office. (Please be reminded that GHS does not have your original birth certificates on file.)

The PSAT/NMSQT could be important to your future since it is the only qualifying test for the National Merit Scholarships as well as the National Hispanic Scholar Award Program or the Fund for Negro Students. The registration bulletin for the PSAT has sample questions and useful information which you should study before the test. Remember, if you have taken the exam your freshman or sophomore year you must re-take it your junior year for the score to be considered for the National Merit Scholarship program. The junior year score is the qualifying score. The last two year’s scores were for practice ONLY for the programs listed above, but may be utilized on other scholarship or Governor’s Scholars Program applications. See your counselor for availability and details.
Plan to take the PSAT  test as the qualifier for the National Merit Scholarships. Students may submit either PSAT or ACT scores for the Governor’s Scholars Program. This test will only be given once at GHS – on the date indicated and no make-ups.

COLLEGE DAYS
This year administration has granted juniors two college days. You may not use these days during state testing or dates designated "off-limits" by administration. Junior students need to obtain a college day prearranged form from the junior counselor three (3) days prior to the visit and obtain the proper approval – parent, teachers and principal. Students visiting WKU-Glasgow Campus or other post-secondary institutions in Glasgow/Barren County are only granted 1/2 day unless approved through the junior guidance counselor. (You will not receive another 1/2 day later. This will suffice as your college day.) Always contact the college you are visiting in advance and submit proper documentation (on letterhead) from the college visit to GHS attendance clerk for the absence to be excused on your return the next school day. (This is the student’s responsibility.)

Fall/Winter
Reminder: Applications for Governor Scholars will be available in October and are due after November/Thanksgiving Break . Review “Helpful Hints” at
www.gsp.ky.gov for some valuable information.

Spring
Take or retake the ACT and/or SAT I. Remember that you can retake either of these in the fall of your senior year – before various scholarships are due.
Contact colleges which interest you. Keep a folder on each as you collect information by reading, watching promotional videos, visiting campuses, or talking to current students and graduates. That will help make your college choice easier.

If you are pursuing other career plans, begin shadowing, volunteering or working in various jobs to help with your career choices.
Summer

Again, contact colleges and/or vocational technical schools for more information. Go on-line and visit their web site and ask for an undergraduate catalog.
Consider visiting campuses if you have not already done so in the spring of your junior year. Keep college notes to help you narrow your choices in the fall.
