FROM THE COUNSELOR’S DESK

  • College & Military bound students, please take a selfie with your college pennant or acceptance letter.  Email the picture to susie.osment@newtonisd.net.
  • Check your email frequently!  Vote on Superlatives!
  • Transcript requests must be emailed to glenda.huff@newtonisd.net.  She will send an official transcript electronically to the college.
  • Senior ranking will be announced at the normal time in May.
  • A date for Seniors to pick up pictures, cap & gowns, and lettermen jackets will be scheduled soon!   An announcement will be sent out when we have a definitive date and time.
  • If you are attending Lamar Institute of Technology (LIT) for college, contact the following person:
  • Still need a meningitis shot for college? Walgreens will file on your insurance or you can pay $77 without insurance for the immunization.  Also, check with the Newton County Health Department at 409-379-5291.  They may be open during COVID-19 and the immunization is approximately $10 with insurance and $5 without insurance.
  • TSI testing – If you still need to take the TSI, please reach out to your college for questions on how to take an TSI/ACCUPLACER test at this time.  Examity is a secure online proctoring service that allows students to take their TSI/ACCUPLACER test from home, so ask the college if they offer that option.  They may also waive the requirements of testing due to COVID-19.
  • In response to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, College Board canceled the May 2, 2020, SAT and SAT Subject Test administration.  Currently, the next SAT is scheduled for the first weekend of June. They are working with test centers and will decide whether they can safely hold that administration as soon as it's feasible, given the evolving public health situation.
  • ACT has rescheduled its April national and international tests in response to concerns about the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19). All students registered for April test dates will receive an email from ACT informing them of the postponement and instructions for free rescheduling to June or a future test date.
  • Reach out to your admissions department at the college you plan to attend in the Fall.  If you are not meeting the testing requirements for college entrance and are unable to reschedule an ACT/SAT/TSI test, they will let you know what options you have at this time.  Many colleges are making exceptions and waiving the college entrance requirements due to COVID-19.  They are evaluating more than just your GPA and test scores for college entrance purposes.  Don’t give up…..reach out and ask questions!
