Senior Future Planning

Hello Seniors! I am thrilled to work with you this school year on the next steps to your future planning. I will be coming into your English class this September to discuss the steps to applying to College and Trade School. We will also discuss the FAFSA and Scholarships as those become available. I look forward to getting to know all of you better and helping you each individually with the next steps in reaching your goals!

Fall Dual Enrollment Open!

Dual Enrollment opens today! If you are interested in Dual Enrolling for Fall 2021 you need to pick out your class/es and fill out the attached paperwork. This paperwork can also be found outside my office as well. Paperwork needs to be submitted to me either in person or via email no later than Friday, May 14th. If you have questions please feel free to schedule an appointment with me or email me. DO NOT WAIT to do this because May 14th will be here before you know it. Classes also fill up fast through Mid and you don’t want to miss out on the classes you want. 
Once you are registered for your Dual course/es we can adjust your course requests in PowerSchool for Fall as well.

Scholarships Deadlines Approaching!

Please visit the Scholarships Page on the website before it is too late! Many scholarships are coming due in the next weeks and you do not want to miss out on these opportunities. The McBain Rural Agricultural Foundation Scholarship and the Earl A. & Viola May Meekhof Scholarship are due next Friday to me. There will be NO LATE ENTRIES. Both are available to only McBain Seniors, so please do not wait until the last minute to get these done.

CTC Program Videos

Hello Sophomores! Unfortunately, we did not have the ability to visit CTC and view their programs in person this year. However, CTC has done a great job of trying to capture each program on video. I have a link to all of the detailed CTC Program Videos here for you to check out. If you want to sign up for a particular program all you need to do is email me or stop by my office. Spots are limited so if you are certain about joining CTC please let me know right away. I will also be coming into your English classes soon to help you select your classes for next year. If you need to meet with me beforehand please feel free to reach out!

FAFSA Deadline Quickly Approaching!

Please submit your FAFSA now! The deadline for completing the FAFSA in the state of Michigan is March 1, 2021, by midnight CT. There are federal deadlines, state deadlines, and college deadlines for the FAFSA. States and colleges use FAFSA information to award their own grants, scholarships, and loans. But, since aid is limited, you have to meet the deadlines! Please check your college’s deadline for completion as well. If you have any questions please feel free to ask!

Seniors Apply NOW for Scholarships

Please visit the counseling page’s Scholarship tab and the MRASF Scholarship tab to explore ways to get FREE money for college, trade school, or other certificate programs. Many of the scholarships are already printed and hanging outside the counseling office for your convenience. Deadlines are approaching! Please do not miss out on this amazing opportunity! If you have questions or don’t know where to start, please see Mrs. Podsaid for help.

Reminder to Visit the Scholarship Page for 2020-2021

Please check out the Scholarship Page to find all the scholarships we offer and when they are available. Please check dates and read carefully! These will be updated as new information is given to me from the scholarship committees.

Make sure you fill out your FAFSA asap! This will help you be eligible for your College’s scholarships. Don’t wait and miss out on FREE money! Please feel free to contact me with any questions.
