We are pleased to announce the release of the latest issue of Mary Ellen Henderson's literary magazine, The Flaming Pen. The Flaming Pen is written, edited, drawn and designed entirely by students, with minimal meddling by Mr. Kelly. The student editorial team collaborated admirably this year to learn about editing, layout and design, and we hope you enjoy the results. Congratulations to all our authors and artists (and editors)!
The counseling department has been working with 7th and 8th grade students this spring to develop academic and career plans. The comprehensive platform called Naviance is used to aid student’s self-discovery, career exploration, academic planning, and college exploration. George Mason High School has had the tool for many years and we now have the capability to use it to further our career exploration program at MEHMS. The counseling staff has visited several classes teaching students how to take self-discovery assessments, matching career clusters to personal interests, and selecting classes to consider in the future. The counseling department at MEH will host a parent education night teaching parents/guardians how to use Naviance at home with your current 7th and 8th grade students. The Naviance parent education night will be on May 18th from 7-8pm in the cafeteria.
