Congratulations to Shannon Garrison for being nominated FFA Student of the Month!
Fair exhibitors: Please check out the list of students who are excused from school on September 10 &/or 11 due to having 4-H or FFA projects at the fair. This list is located on the window outside the front office. If there are any discrepancies with the excused days, please let the front office know.
If you would like to run for a senior class officer position, please get a nomination form from Mr. Martin in room 138. These forms must be completed and turned in to Mr. Martin by Friday, September 5, 2014. If you would like to vote for the senior class officers, stop by Mr. Martin’s room on September 12, 2014 to vote.
Just a reminder that federal law requires males to register for the selective service when you turn 18. Go to www.sss.gov to register.
Any student who will be driving to school this year will need to stop in at the front office and pick up a parking permit application. This year we will be issuing parking permits to be kept in your car.
The University of Akron Wayne College is planning a "College Road Map" event; a general college information night to help juniors, seniors and their parents through the college process. This event will take place Monday, September 15 at 6:30 p.m. in the Student Life Building on Wayne campus. Selecting the right college, how to navigate the college admission process, tips on keeping track of deadlines, how to "work" college fairs, what to look for on campus visits, ACT/SAT information, where to begin the financial aid process and where to look for scholarships are just a few of the topics that will be covered. Each student attending needs to RSVP online at wayne.uakron.edu/roadmap by September 11. For more information, contact Sarah Morrow at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The last day to register for the ACT prep class offered at Northwestern is Thursday, Sept. 4th. Deadline for the payment of $100 is also the 4th.
The last day to turn in a completed Pass for Credit form for 1st semester/All-Year Classes will be Tuesday, September 2. Pick up a blue form in the Guidance office before then to make sure you are able to get all the needed signatures.
College fairs are a fantastic way to pick up a lot of information from many different colleges at once. You can speak to college representatives from community colleges, 2-year and 4-year colleges, public schools and private schools. They are free to attend and a great way to start or continue your college search process. Here are some upcoming college fairs to consider attending:
1. Tuesday, September 23: College Fair at OSU-Mansfield & North Central State College in the Campus Recreation Center. The Fair is from 6:00 - 8:00 pm and includes a Financial Aid Session to learn about college financing options at 6:00 pm.
2. Monday, September 29: The Wayne County Counselor's Association College Fair at Wooster High School from 6:30-8:00 pm.
3. Wednesday, October 8: College Fair for Students with Learning Disabilities at Gahanna Lincoln High School Cafeteria from 6:30 - 8:00 pm. Address is 140 South Hamilton Road, Gahanna, Ohio. This is your opportunity to explore various programs and you can compare/contrast the wide range of accommodations. For more information, contact Phyllis Solove at 614.478.5500 x126.
Attention current sophomores and juniors: We still have 2 spots available for anyone interested in participating in the Junior Leadership Wooster program. This is a leadership development program where you will learn about local Wayne County issues and participate in activities to build community awareness, team building, and communication skills. The deadline to apply for this program is today, August 29. For more information, please see Mrs. Thomas in the Guidance Office.
The next ACT test date you can sign up for is the October 25th test. The registration deadline is September 19. Students must register online at www.actstudent.org/start. If you register by the September 19 deadline, the cost is $38.00 for non-writing and $54.50 if you choose to take the writing portion. The October test is strongly recommended for any seniors still needing to take the ACT to ensure you are not missing any college or scholarship deadlines. Stop by Guidance if you have any questions about the ACT or need help with registering.
Attention Senior student-athletes: Seniors involved with at least one varsity sport, who has a 3.0 gpa or better, and who are an active leader in our school/community are invited to apply for the Wendy's High School Heisman Award by October 3, 2014.

The PSAT will be held Wednesday, October 15, 2014 at Northwestern High School. This is an optional test for sophomores or juniors interested in preparing for the SAT and gaining standardized testing experience. The National Merit Scholarship is also based off of top-scoring juniors who take the PSAT. Students must sign up in the Guidance Office by Friday, October 10.
