College Admission Reps Event in PDX

I received a letter indicating that admission reps from Duke, Georgetown, Harvard, Penn and Stanford are going to be in Portland in a couple of weeks. Here is what you need to know:

The event is free to attend, but you are required to pre-register. If you do go, please dress appropriately- clean slacks/skirts/dress and clean shirt- no advertisement on clothing, short skirts or low cut tops- you are not there to advertise for Abercrombie and Fitch or Victoria’s Secret, but rather, to make a professional and positive impression. Leave the flip-flops at home too, and if you can imagine doing so, leave your cell phone at home too. If that’s too painful, then power it off before walking into the meeting. I know you can do it!!!

I encourage you to introduce yourself to the reps and gather any literature they have to offer. Want to knock their socks off? Follow up with a handwritten thank you card and be sure to include what attracts you to their perspective school and how their campus can help you fulfill future career goals. The impact of the handwritten note truly did not die with the dinosaurs; it only seems like it. If you have illegible handwriting, then print carefully.

Please let me know if I can help you in any way.

Take care,

Mrs. Liebe

8th Annual Research Symposium

Dear Students, Parents, & Guests,

We’d like to cordially invite you to join us for the 8th annual Camas High School Magnet Program Student Research Symposium, on Wednesday, May 20th,  2015.

At this event, student groups from grades 9-12 will present their research findings from this year’s study of a wide range of project topics.  Many of these same research projects have recently been presented at state and national competitions.  This is a great opportunity for our students to showcase their work and present to a live audience of peers and parents.  Later in the evening, a few of these groups will present their work to a panel of local experts.

In addition to the parents and guests of current students who will be attending, we are also happy to invite and welcome the incoming group of Magnet freshmen and families for the 2015-2016 school year.  We hope you will be able to join us so we can get to know you, but also to provide you with a little inspiration and a glimpse of some of the opportunities for next year’s course of study and beyond.

Agenda for the evening:

6:00 – 7:00 p.m.

  • Poster fair and social in the CHS commons
  • Refreshments provided

7:15-8:30 p.m.

  • Brief remarks in the CHS Theater
  • Presentation of selected team research projects
  • Closing remarks

We look forward to seeing you at Camas High School on Wednesday, May 20th ,  2015.
