My name is Carol Canet and I am the Guidance and College Counselor for Grace Brethren.
Since the college nights were so popular and well received last year, we will continue to provide this tool for Grace Brethren families. We are again hosting a number of college nights specific to each grade level. I want to strongly encourage you to come to the night specified for your student's grade. Senior parents, please make note: there are 2 college nights for you to attend—both will be filled with different information, so do you best to come to both.
Please do not miss these nights as they will be rich with information that will greatly help you as you and your student navigate through the college admissions process. Whether your child is considering a junior college or a 4 year university, these nights will be greatly informative for both you and your student alike. All College Nights will begin at 7 pm.
Here are the dates to include on your calendar:
Wed, September 28, 2011: Senior College Night #1
Tuesday, November 17, 2011: Senior College Night #2
Tuesday, January 24, 2012: Junior College Night
Tuesday, February 7, 2012: Sophomore College Night
Thursday, March 16, 2012: Freshmen & 8th grade College Night
In the days prior to these college events, I will e-mail you all a reminder. If you can, please put the date (specific to your students grade level) on your calendar now. You dont want to miss all the information that will be explained and disbursed these evenings. It could save you much time, energy and money as you walk through this college planning process. Please plan to be there!!
In addition to these parent college nights, I will be speaking to each grade level individually and providing them a packet full of information that is college specific for their grade level. As I plan to go into their classrooms, I will be sure to e-mail you to let you know that the packets did go home so you can ask your student to see what was provided to him or her. Please plan to review this material with your student.
Starting the college process early is one way to increase your chances at college admissions come your students senior year.
If you have any questions between now and then or even after these college nights, please do not hesitate to e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org
