Senior Yearbook Ads
Deadline Dec 3, 2012
We invite you to leave a special note to your son, daughter, or sibling in his or her high school yearbook. Messages can only be placed by immediate family. Due to limited space, each senior will be allowed no more than two messages, so it is imperative that messages are submitted early.
To submit an ad for your daughter or son, click here and enter order number: 6921 for Northgate High School.
About getting transcripts:
- With such a high volume of transcript requests, the Registrar needs 2 weeks prior to the college deadline to process and send your transcript.
- Once the college has received the transcript, it can take them up to a month to process it due to the volume they receive.
- Remember—when you give the Registrar an envelope for your transcript, address it to the college Office of Admissions, Attn: Freshman Admissions. Put the Northgate address (425 Castle Rock Road, WC 94598) as the return address.
- You can call the college admissions office to check on the status of the transcript if you have not seen it posted in 3 weeks.
- If you need recommendations, ask teachers if they will provide you with one. Do not just drop off an envelope.
- Give the teacher your Personal Data form (available in the College/Career Center) so he/she has all of your information.
- If you need the teacher to mail in the recommendation, provide a stamped, addressed (Office of Admissions, Attn. Freshman Admissions) envelope with Northgate as the return address.
- Give the teacher the deadline for the recommendation.
- Give the teacher at least 2 weeks before the college deadline to submit your recommendation.
- Recommendations are not to be viewed by the student.
Questions? See Ms. Clark in the College/Career Center
Useful iPhone Application
CollegeMapp is the first iPhone application designed to help seniors get organized and stay organized.
Some seniors struggle to stay on top of deadlines and paperwork even when the information is readily available online. Typically, students apply to eight or more colleges, and with multiple essays, deadlines and a variety of other requirements, students and families could benefit from some hi-tech help. With CollegeMapp, students can have access to all this information 24/7 on their iPhones! They can also email a spreadsheet of information to parents or counselors.
CollegeMapp is available to iPhone users only on the iTunes store for $1.99. This is a one-time purchase price, not a monthly fee. Students often pay more to purchase a song on iTunes!
For more information, check out www.CollegeMapp.com, or link directly to iTunes at iTunes
