If you’ll be graduating this year and are planning on attending college, then you should be thinking about how you’re going to pay for your education if you haven’t already. Seniors, the time is fast approaching for the deadline to get your information and student loan applications in.
You can stop by the counselors office if you have any questions. Some of you may be wondering how do student loans work. Just follow that link or ask your counselor as they will be happy to explain the process to you.
Also, if you haven’t decided on a college to attend, the counselors office generally has forms and brochures on any number of universities and colleges that offer programs for your chosen field. Be sure to check as many of these colleges and universities out before committing to any one.
Also, for those of you who do not plan on attending college, please be aware that there are vocational opportunities galore in our area. You’ll find these types of vo-tech colleges to be much more affordable with flexible class hours than traditional 4 year colleges. We encourage all students to think about their future and obtain some type of higher education.
There are many blue collar jobs that pay more than jobs that require a 4 year degree, so just because you or your parents can not afford to send you to college doesn’t mean there’s no hope for you getting an education and making a good living!
Rumors have it that there may be classes in the future over the subject of Online Entrepreneurship. This would be great as our society moves toward a virtual society. Many of the students and parents are excited about this possibility, although there are the naysayers. Even so, from what I’ve heard, it’s being given serious thought.
Learning how to make money online is never easy. Many students that attempt to start their own business soon fail for a number of reasons. This is why many educators feel it’s important to start a class on how to make money on the Internet and to establish a web presence.
There has been talk about merging the current Online department, which generally specializes in teaching students how to build websites and we applications, into this new online entrepreneur class. But there is nothing set in stone at this point. Another option would be to have a community college teach the class after hours and to give interested students a voucher to attend.
Whether or not this actually happens remains to be seen. If so, I believe many students will enjoy the lifestyles that an online business can bring, not to mention learning an important skill set like making money online. I can’t wait to see if this will come to fruition or not!
Well, as if the State of California hasn’t meddled enough into our private lives, the State has enacted new immunization requirements that will affect ALL students. Yep, even you Middle and High school students at Nevada Union.
Here’s the Official Notice from Nevada Union High School.
The State of California is requiring all high school students to submit proof of having received the pertussis booster (Tdap) vaccine prior to the start of the 2011-2012 school year. This new immunization mandate has been instituted due to the current pertussis (whooping cough) epidemic in California. This vaccine is usually given at age 10 years or older. Please provide proof of vaccination to the nurse’s office at your student’s high school before April 1, 2011. YOUR STUDENT WILL NOT BE ALLOWED TO START SCHOOL WITHOUT MEETING THIS REQUIREMENT!
We are now able to provide the Pertussis booster (Tdap) vaccine to qualifying students at school, during school hours. Please pick-up the information and consent form from the health office or download the information and consent forms below. If after reading the information, you believe your student will qualify to receive this vaccine, then please complete the questionnaire, sign and return the forms to the school health office and your student will be called from class and the vaccine will be administered to them. We cannot administer this vaccine to your student without the signed consent forms. There is a limited supply so if you are able to get this vaccine at your physician’s office please do so ASAP.
Thank you for your cooperation in this important Public Health matter.
If you have any questions or concerns please contact the health office at your student’s school
Okay, so now you know. And like GI Joe said, “Knowing is half the battle”. You just have to add this to the long list of things to do before you get ready to head back to school this fall. Good luck Nevada Union students!
Hey everyone, graduation is just around the corner, June 10th, and letters have been sent out to all the Nevada Union High School Seniors this year. If you haven’t received your letter, then contact the school at Nevada Union High School.
Also, Parents are reminded to start thinking about their child’s higher education. We understand that many may need financial aid, so we’re trying to get career counselors in place to give parents help. If you think you’ll need a trade school loan to help you child get an education, please stay tuned.
In other news, Grad Night, a non-profit celebration needs your help! It takes a lot of participation to make it happen. You may get involved in the event AND/OR help us by doing all of your shopping on-line through our shopping portal. Find more information on this by visiting NUHS Announcement page. More and more volunteers are needed to make this happen. It’s not a Nevada Union High Schools sponsored event and it only put on by Volunteers. Every year the event has grown and attendance has climbed. For continued success of the BRHS Grad Night your help is needed. Plan now to be involved in one of the biggest events in the graduating seniors’ life. Make it a Grad Night to be remembered for years to come.
Graduation night is June 10th. The ceremony will be at 7 p.m. and the school says you won’t need a ticket unless it’s raining. I have no idea why you would need a ticket if it rains, so let’s hope that it doesn’t rain and cause us all to have to buy tickets to get into the Nevada Union High School Graduation ceremony!
This site is dedicated to the Nevada Union High School. This fan page is your source for information for students of Nevada Union High School.
NUHS.NET provides the means for you to try and get in touch with other students, classmates, alumni, teachers and others you may have known in the past. The simplest way to do this is in my opinion is to exchange Facebook pages by leaving a comment on this site. No logging in, no sharing personal information. None of that nonsense, just leave a comment on this page with your Name, Graduating year (or years attended) and your Facebook name and whether you were a student, Teacher, Admin or a Janitor . Then let other students and alumni find you easily.
This site, while graciously linked to by Nevada Union High School, is NOT an official Nevada Union High School site. Instead, it is built, maintained, run by, and paid for by me.
As a result, I have no information on transcripts, class schedules, grading, or any other official school function.
If you need that type of informaction, please visit Nevada Union High School’s web page and you’ll find information about contacting the school concerning those matters.
