Daily Student Bulletin

November 21, 2017

Girl Up, there will be a meeting today at 3 PM in Mrs. Shannon’s room. See you there!                              

All schedule corrections must be made by the end of the school day on Monday, November 27. Send your school counselor an email stating the REASON you need to make a schedule change.  Remember, changes must be based on inappropriate placement, to balance a class size, or to upgrade a schedule. After November 27, schedule changes require a principal's signature and usually result in an F on your transcript.                                                                     

Here is the information about COLLEGE VISITS from our Student Handbook:  

College Visits

Students are encouraged to visit college campuses on weekends or school holidays. However, if that cannot be arranged, students may be allowed to visit college campuses with pre-arranged permission of the school counselor AND a note signed by the student's parents. College visits cleared by parents in this manner are excused absences.

That means students must bring their school counselor a note from their parents that includes the name of the college and the date visiting at least 24 hours before the college visit.                                               

The following colleges will have representatives in our School Counseling office.  If you want to meet with a college representative, simply email Renee at rkybat@lewiscentral.org, and she will send a call slip for you when the representative arrives

Peru State College will be here at 9:00 on Monday, November 27.  Peru State College is located in Peru, Nebraska, which is just a little over an hour south of Council Bluffs via I-29. PSU gives Iowa graduates in-state tuition, which is right around $6,000, and room and board is only about $7,000. It has about 2,500 students, and Peru State's most popular majors are business, education, psychology, and security and protective services. Mr. Bond, Mr. Hanafan, and Ms. Woodward have all earned master's degrees from Peru State College, so be sure to ask them about their Bobcat experiences.
