Third Quarter Grades are coming home soon! 

Report cards will be distributed on Tuesday, March 21st during R5.  Ask your child to see their report card and discuss their grades.  Remember, these grades will be averaged with the grades they earn from the fourth quarter to determine their second semester grade.  The second semester grade goes on their transcript, which is seen by admission counselors for post-secondary institutions.  Please help us stress the message that GRADES MATTER!

The Ron Brown Scholar Program-Guided Pathway Support Program (GPS) (See attachment) 

The Guided Pathway Support Program (GPS) helps African-American juniors and seniors navigate the path to top colleges by directing students to the most comprehensive and reliable resources available.  This free program, teaches students how to prepare for, apply to, pay for, persist in and graduate from college

Using a “high tech and high touch” approach, GPS narrows the college access gap using tele-mentoring through their exclusive GPS Workplace by Facebook community, direct interactions with admissions professionals and exposure to successful peer role models.  GPS empowers high school juniors, seniors and their parents throughout the college application process.

With GPS, the messengers complement the message.  GPS students are mentored and guided by Ron Brown Scholars and Captains.  As opposed to traditional mentoring programs, Ron Brown Scholars and Captains are similar in racial identity, age, income, and life experiences to meaningfully engage GPS students.  They have already successfully navigated college journeys from hardship into America’s top colleges and universities, graduate schools and corporations and are eager to guide others. 

Students interested in being apart of this competitive program shoul apply online at https://ronbrowngps.fluidreview.com.  the application deadline is May 31, 2017.  Accepted students should expect to be notified on a rolling basis no later than July 15, 2017.
