News From Your Counselors
Happy Spring! The longer, sunny days are hopefully bringing an air of optimism to all as we head into the last quarter of this very different school year.
In February, all 9th-11th grade students made initial requests for courses for next year during a guided presentation in the Auditorium or one on one with a School Counselor. There are still many unknowns about what next year will look like, but we are slowly beginning to consider different possibilities and working on building a master schedule. It is a good time to have a conversation with your child about the courses they are considering for next year.
Seniors- As the year is winding down, if you have not done so already, make some time to check in with your counselor to talk about your plans for life after MMU. For those seniors who have applied to college, please remember to indicate decisions in your Naviance account.
Since summer vacation will be here before we know it, you may want to check out the list of Summer Opportunities listed on the Student Services webpage.
We want to acknowledge that while the shift in seasons is undoubtedly helping the mindset of many, some people are still really struggling. There is still a lot of unrest, and overt violence and racism taking place in the world. We want to share a list of resources for talking about race, racism and racialized violence with kids, from The Center For Racial Justice In Education that may be helpful when talking with your child.
Please stay in touch and let us know how we can support you!

• A note about Driver’s Ed:
Each year we get many questions about how to register for driver’s education at MMU. The first thing students need to do in order to get on our driver’s ed list is to bring their permit to Student Services to be copied. This makes one eligible for the class. Each semester, we schedule the oldest students whose permits are on file.
