I hope you had a restful break. It was good on our end too, but I'm always excited to get back into the swing of things.
As I mentioned a few weeks ago, we are going to start including a few points of interest in each newsletter under the header, Dublin Jerome High School In The Know. We will keep a running list on our website for people to reference as we move forward. You may already know some of these, but hopefully you'll find out something new along the way as well.
Have a great weekend!
Dublin Jerome High School In The Know
In general, most of our students apply to six or seven colleges. Due to the Common Application it is much easier to apply to schools, but our counselors recommend keeping the number under ten in order to stay on top of the process.
Each department throughout the high school (math, science, business, etc) has a teacher serving as the department chair. In addition to teaching a full course load, this individual serves as the point person for his/her department, meets directly with the administration monthly, assists in how courses and teachers are assigned within the master schedule, and oversees the department budget. Although all of our teachers can speak about the courses in their department, the department chairs are often well-positioned to give a global perspective to students and parents about which classes might be the most beneficial depending on interest and career aspirations.
Any senior who did not pick up their graduation orders today can pick them up between the commons and CPA beginning at lunch until the end of the day this Friday, April 7. Please see Mrs. Huber in the main office if you have any questions.
Time is quickly running out to order your 2016-17 Dublin Jerome yearbook! The easiest and quickest way to order is to go to the Dublin Jerome website and under student resources, click on PURCHASE YEARBOOK. This takes you to the site to order and pay for the yearbook. Don't miss out on this opportunity - there are NO guarantees that extra books will be available after April 13th so order NOW! Thank you for your support of the Dublin Jerome yearbook staff.
