When students take the first two steps—exploring college and practicing for the SAT®—they’ll qualify for $500 and $1,000 scholarships just by getting ready for college. And they don’t even have to get off the couch. Help students build a college list: This $500 scholarship closes on July 31 for the class of 2021. Students can use their mobile phones or any other device to build a start list of colleges using the college planning site BigFuture™.

Parents, we need your help! Some of the high school students are not turning in their work. Please make sure your students are completing the assignments in Spark or the paper work which has been sent to them if internet access is not available and returning the completed assignments to the teachers. This is work which is beneficial to the students and we don't want their skills to slip. It will be difficult for teachers in the future to write recommendation letters for scholarships and opportunities if students are not turning in their work and finishing out the year since the opportunity is available to them. They are welcome to accelerate through in classes where they can and get the year wrapped up, but it is important that they finish. Thanks for your support!

Students, hope you're taking time out from online learning to get some exercise, take up some new hobbies, or spend time with your family making some special memories. Don't stress over the challenges of learning online. Keep in touch with your teachers by email and let them know if you're having problems or if you have questions. Parents, it's important to keep your students emotionally healthy during this time. Encourage them to learn some new skills like building items out of recycled materials, crocheting, take them fishing or bike riding. Plan a picnic together. Take advantage of this time to have some fun together. It's important to give them purpose and fun along with their studies. This is such a contrast to the time they are accustomed to spending with friends and schoolmates they may experience some emotional lows. If there's anything you need help with or if you have questions, feel free to contact any of your teachers or Mrs. Hopper as counselor. Stay healthy! Hope to have life back to normal soon!

College can be expensive. That’s why scholarships for women are so valuable. First, they help lower the cost of going to school, which is worthwhile in itself. Second, they are only open to female students, making them potentially less competitive. If you have a female student getting ready to head to college, here is the ultimate list of scholarships for women and girls. If your student isn’t sure what degree she will pursue or simply wants to apply for awards that don’t require a specific major, general scholarships are an excellent choice. This site includes scholarships that aren’t restricted to specific fields, making them more flexible than some other options, like scholarships for women in STEM. Apply today!

Concurrent enrollment (college classes while in high school) is available to juniors and seniors with tuition paid by the Oklahoma State Regents for seniors on 18 hours and NWOSU will waive tuition on 6 hours for juniors. Students pay only the class fees and for books. Check with the registrar's office at the college you choose to see how much the fees are. Students have to have at least a 19 in reading and a 19 in any subject area they wish to take classes in on their ACT. That's one more reason it's important for students to begin taking their ACT. I recommend once toward the end of the year their freshman and sophomore years and 2-4 times their junior and senior year. Get signed up at actstudent.org. Mrs. Hopper can help you to see if you qualify to take concurrent classes and help you get signed up.

the Jimmie L Dean Scholarship Foundation is now taking applications for the 2020-2021 academic year through April 15, 2020 at our website www.jimmiedeanfoundation.org Every year since 2010, we have provided individual scholarships of up to $10,000 per year to outstanding Oklahoma students who attend Oklahoma colleges and Universities. Since our first awards in the 2010-2011 School year we have provided actual funds of almost $1 million. Our mission is to provide financial assistance to Oklahoma students who will attend Oklahoma colleges and universities that we feel will remain in out great state after graduation and contribute to the Oklahoma economy for many years. This award does not consider income levels, hardship conditions, or a specific entrance test score (although we do require a minimum 25 ACT score for 4 year colleges and Universities and 17 for OSUIT students). We do take into consideration the test score when trying to project a student's success in their chosen major area of study. We are simply looking for true Oklahomans who may find themselves in the position of not having sufficient funds to attend college but have income levels that preclude them from receiving enough financial assistance to cover their costs of attendance. Our awards are structured in a manner to fill in the gap between the scholarships and awards already earned by a student and the cost of tuition and academic fees plus room and board charges, with the goal to eliminate or reduce the need for student debt. The qualities we are looking for are students who are responsible citizens who have worked hard and have achieved good academic standing. We view a student's work history, their expected major, their academic achievement and recommendations from those they have been associated with as a body of work to eventually make our decision as to who will receive an award. Our application form provides an avenue for a short student essay to allow them to introduce themselves to our foundation. We rely upon this to help select our finalists each year. We encourage you to communicate to prospective students they take this opportunity very seriously. You would be surprised as to how many essays simply state the students need for money or tell us about the other members of their family but really nothing about themselves. In all candor we already know they need money or they would not be applying and telling us about family members is only relevant if it provides insight into the student. We want to know about the student, what jobs they have held, what would make them a good investment for us, and how do they exemplify the qualities of the Foundation. Our awards are primarily awarded to students who will be pursuing degrees that are science related rather than arts majors. Therefore, some of the majors we will not consider are music, performing arts, English, literature, Psychology, Sociology, Journalism, Business, Pre-law, Political Science, Music, Education or similar majors. In short, we are looking for students who are wanting to make or build things or serve in a health science field.
Seniors and senior parents: Senior panel proofs are being sent home today. Please select the panel proof that you want on the senior panel. The deadline is December 18th. If a selected proof is not in Horton's office by December 18th, they will select one. You can select one on the form and mail it, drop it off with Mrs. Green, or select online at: https://hortonstudios.hhimagehost.com/V2/Home/LoginConsumer?EK=139796 The password is on the back of the form.

OMRF Accepting 2020 Fleming Scholarship Applications OMRF is accepting applications for its 2020 Sir Alexander Fleming Scholar Program. The application deadline is Feb. 1. The eight-week summer program allows the state’s top science students to enhance their research skills by gaining hands-on experience in a lab setting alongside some of the top researchers in their fields. High school seniors, as well as college freshmen, sophomores and juniors, are eligible to apply. Students must be Oklahoma residents at the time of high school graduation to be eligible. The application process includes submission of a long-form essay, letters of recommendation and academic transcripts. Students must be 16 or older to qualify. Once selected, Fleming Scholars are paid and may be eligible for housing. “This program has provided a springboard for many careers in science and medicine, and there’s really nothing else like it in the state at this stage in a student’s journey,” said Fleming program coordinator Heather Hebert. “This is an opportunity to get experience that cannot be emulated in a classroom setting.” The program is named for Nobel Prize-winning scientist Sir Alexander Fleming, who discovered penicillin and also dedicated OMRF’s first building in 1949. Since the inception of the program in 1956, more than 600 Oklahoma students have had the opportunity to work in state-of-the-art labs at OMRF. Two current OMRF vice presidents, Rodger McEver, M.D., and Judith James, M.D., Ph.D., started their research careers as Fleming Scholars. For application information, visit omrf.org/fleming.

Greetings from Bacone College! Bacone College in Muskogee, Oklahoma and we are Oklahoma's oldest higher education institution. Our institution is returning to its historical mission to educate American Indians. As we prepare to transition to a tribal college, we are seeking out all Native students who wish to earn a college degree within a diverse campus community. We offer small class sizes and understand the factors that keep our Native youth from completing their degree. Our staff is trained and willing to help all of our students become successful. We also offer our students the opportunity to play collegiate athletics. We currently offer all American Indian students a $10,000 scholarship per academic year!!! I pray that you have students within your district that would be a good fit for Bacone College. I have attached three fliers for your reading. One shows the academic programs, admission requirements, fun facts, and the other is an invite for your students to attend a native American Day on our campus. We understand that travel may be an issue and can offer an alternative for those who wish to attend but are unable. I am available by email and phone for any questions. I hope to hear from you soon, MVTO(Thank you), Kaila photo Kaila Harjo, M.S.

On behalf of Colonel David Fallon, Marine Corps Commanding Officer in the Midwest region, I wanted to make you aware of an opportunity to see the process of young men and women becoming U.S. Marines. Each year, the Marine Corps hosts high school influencers in San Diego to become better informed on the recruitment process, entry-level training, career opportunities, the emphasis on education in the Marine Corps, and to dispel myths and assumptions based on USMC stereotypes, family support, and community services. This program is an all-expenses paid, one-week immersion program where you can have the chance to stand on the infamous yellow footprints, observe and talk to recruits in recruit training, shoot the Marine Corps service rifle, interact with drill instructors, participate in the Bayonet Assault Course, and witness a recruit graduation ceremony. The following are links to videos on what your peers have said about our program: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BEWfE8fkC48 https://www.dvidshub.net/video/708007/mcrd-san-diego-educators-workshop If this interests you, and you think you're up to the challenge, please contact 9th Marine Corps District at 9MCD_MidWestMarines_OMB@marines.usmc.mil and we will contact you promptly. Please provide the following: school, phone number and location so the Marine Corps contact in your area can provide you more information on specific dates. We look forward to hearing from you.
