Things to consider:
As you start your Junior year at MHS there are some things you need to keep in mind that will help you have the greatest opportunities for the coming years:
Professional/Consistent Email - As you begin to pursue colleges/universities, financial aid resources, scholarships, community service opportunities, or employers, you need to have one consistent and professional email address where you can be reached. A professional email is one that does not make reference to anything that may be deemed inappropriate for this level of contact.
Grades - Make your best effort to raise your grades. Remember that the admission counselors, scholarship committees, employers, etc. do not know you. They see your work ethic and possible potential in the grades you display on your transcript. The transcript of grades (GPA, Rank, Course Listing) you create by the end of this year will be the one you use to apply to college.
Free Time - Employers, College Admissions Reps., Scholarship Committees want to know what you are doing in your free time. It is a good idea to add community service or employment to your resume if possible. Remember, when trying to gain admission to college, special programs, or scholarship, making yourself stand out as well rounded individual is important.
Discover/Explore Your Passion - Use this school year to try to determine your areas of greatest interest. Sign up for classes that will enhance your time/experience in that area of study.
