Class of 2015 Summer Reminders
It’s hard to believe that we’ve wrapped up another year at St. Agnes! The counseling department is already working on next year’s planning for rising seniors. We want to share some important reminders with you all regarding the college piece throughout the summer. We will continue to host our Resume Workshops next week and members of the Class of 2015 are required to attend one of these sessions. Dates and times can be found here.
During the summer, your daughters have been asked to complete the Student Reflection Part B. It is due upon returning in August and must be completed before any transcripts can be released and before the counselors can begin working on your daughter’s letter of recommendation. In addition to the reflection, they must provide an initial draft of their resume. We have posted the Student Reflection Part B as well as sample resumes on the counseling website. You can find that information here.
If your daughter would like to send a letter of recommendation to colleges from a person outside of school, this summer is the time when they need to make contact with their potential recommender. Many of your daughters will complete service projects or summer camp experiences and will want to have that perspective included in their application. This is handled solely by your daughter, so please have her make arrangements this summer!
