SENIOR YEAR COLLEGE NIGHT


On September 8th we started the
school year with our college night for
our seniors and their families. We
went over the different application
types, deadlines, and what needs to
be done during the busy application
process. A discussion on financial aid
was brought up as well. It was a great
night to introduce our newest member
of the counseling team, Mrs.
Lieberman.

COLLEGE NIGHT FOR STUDENTS


WITH SPECIAL NEEDS
On October 1st, OBHS sponsored its first
ever college night for students with
learning differences.
Speakers from
Dowling College and Hofstra University
gave students and their parents important
information on applying to, and attending,
colleges with an IEP. It was an excellent
program. Thank you SEPTA for providing
the refreshments!

ANTI-BULLYING MONTH

Since October is anti-bullying month, the middle school counselors went into 7th & 8th
grade classes to discuss bullying and how it can affect a student. Wednesday, October
29th, the middle school counselors had a unity day, where all staff and students wore
orange in unity. Students were asked to sign a pledge against bullying and received a
unity bracelet for their commitment.

SUPERINTENDENTS CONFERENCE DAY

On November 3-4, the counselors visited Quinnipiac, Yale and Southern Connecticut University. It was an eventful two
days, packed with extended tours of the campuses and learning what upcoming changes the schools will have. Located in
or near the heart of New Haven, CT, all three colleges have their remarkable differences. They are all expanding and
providing more resources for their students.
For more information on what the colleges have to offer, please feel free to contact your school counselor.

COLLEGE APPLICATIONS

nd

At our 2
annual Spanish college night,
representatives from SUNY Old Westbury,
Molloy College, and NYIT were present. The
presentation started off with a brief overview
of graduation requirements and ended with
information on the application process, majors
that are offered and financial information from
each college.

The counselors have been working diligently with every senior on the
application process since the beginning of school year.
Working
collaboratively with the English department and providing support to the
Essay Writing class, over 70% of our seniors submitted their applications by
November 30th. Before the holidays, most of our seniors who applied early
action or early decision will know what colleges they have been accepted
to.
