1 Desert Edge High School Volume 5 Issue 1 First Quarter AzCIS The Arizona Career Information System is designed to provide career and educational information to you so that you may make informed decisions about your high school years and life after high school. Counselors also use this site to send students messages regarding college and career related opportunities. Each year, the counselors meet with all grade levels to introduce and/ or reintroduce this website and the information it provides. Students should spend time outside of class on this website! Inside this issue: College Tour & Fairs 2 AIMS 2 Testing: ACT, SAT, ASVAB 3 Planning ahead 4 Counselors 4 Did you know? 5 PSAT October 15, 2014 The Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT) is a program through the College Board. It's a standardized test that provides sophomores and juniors firsthand practice for the SAT. It also gives juniors a chance to enter NMSC scholarship programs and gain access to college and career planning tools. The most common reasons for taking the PSAT/NMSQT are to: Receive feedback on your strengths and weaknesses on skills necessary for college study. You can then focus your preparation on those areas that could most benefit from additional study or practice; See how your performance on an admissions test might compare with that of others applying to college; Enter the competition for scholarships from National Merit Scholarships; We are Desert Edge! RIGOR, RELEVANCE, and RELATIONSHIPS Help prepare for the SAT. You can become familiar with the kinds of questions and the exact directions you will see on the SAT; Receive information from colleges when you check "yes" to Student Search Service. Sign-up beginning August 25th in the Bookstore. The cost is $ Space is limited (110 spots) and it is first come, first serve. You will receive a study guide when you sign-up!

Greater Phoenix National College Fair Sunday, September 28th, 11a.m. 3 p.m. Phoenix Convention Center (100 N 3rd St.) Free, but need to register at Prior to the college fair, the Be A Leader Foundation is hosting a college resource fair (AZ) and Walk-a-Thon. To learn more, go to College Week Live Online college fair. Free, but will need to create an account. Arizona Instrument to Measure Standards (AIMS) Arizona s Class of 2015 and 2016 are required to take and pass the Writing, Reading, and Mathematics portions of the AIMS (Arizona s Instrument to Measure Standards) test by their senior year of high school. The students took the test for the first time in the spring of their sophomore year, and will take the test each time it is offered until they meet standards. In order to receive their high school diploma and participate in graduation ceremonies, current juniors and seniors must meet all credit/subject requirements and meet standard on each of the required portions of AIMS. Helpful hints for the AIMS Writing: Students are given a topic to write about. Some of the types of formats are business letter, short story, or a five paragraph essay. Within these formats you must include the topic given. Students should remember to stay on topic, use the space provided, write a rough draft that is edited upon completion, and make the final draft legible. Helpful Hints for the AIMS Math: For Math draw and label figures as this can help you understand the problems. Seeing the problem makes it easier to solve. Look for Math vocabulary and read carefully and perform the correct math operations. Work out every problem- DON T come up with a solutions in your head only. Show your work for every problem. Check your work and ask yourself does the answer on your paper seem like a reasonable answer to the problem. Practice questions can be found at aimssupportmaterials/. Help is also available on Pearson s site, https:// perspective.pearsonaccess.com/ perspective/appmanager/az/family.

4 Planning ahead Freshman year In your first year of high school, college may seem far away, but get on the right track now and you'll be ahead of the game. Start a calendar with important dates and deadlines. Explore career and college options. Start building your resume, get involved. Read to build your vocabulary, set goals, and start off high school with a good GPA. Sophomore year Take a good look at all your classes and extracurricular activities this year. They'll help you prepare for the next two years and get you on the road to college. Keep up your GPA. Junior year You'll have a busy year as you narrow your college search, visit college campuses, handle challenging coursework and take important tests (e.g., PSAT). You can check out the FAFSA Forecaster as well. Senior year Page 4 Finalize your college list, get applications together, apply for financial aid, AND keep up your grades. Keep on-track by being organized. Apply for college before winter break! Get your PIN (for your FAFSA) in December...complete the FAFSA as soon after January 1st as possible.
