March/April 2016 

This month I visted 9th grade classrooms to talk about:

  • Planning for the future
  • Fixed vs Growth Mindsets
  • Learning Styles
  • Studying Tips


Mr. Johnson (ASPIRE Coordinator), Mr. Ojeda (College and Career Pathway Advisor), and I will be returning to 9th grade classrooms later in the school year to continue talking about college and career goals/planning for the future.

11th Grade

I will be visiting 11th grade classrooms in the month of May to show students how to use online career databases to research potential careers and colleges. 


Now is the time to start narrowing down your options for after high school! 


Next year you will:

  • Fill out the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) - starting in October (this is a new time frame meant to make the FAFSA easier for students and parents to complete!)
  • Apply to colleges around Thanksgiving time
  • Apply for scholarships throughout the year, with more scholarships available second semester

REMEMBER: College doesn't just mean 4-year schools! College can also be 2 year programs; 1 year programs; and even shorter, more specialized programs. Please, seriously consider planning for post-secondary education.  

Mr. Ojeda, Mr. Rooney, and I are working together to start the College Cafe at Mazama. We would like to meet at least once before the end of this school year then once monthly starting next school year. 


The idea behind the College Cafe is that students will have a place to eat lunch together and:

  • Ask questions about college
  • Research colleges and careers
  • Help plan and promote college visits 
  • Complete college applications (seniors)
  • Complete scholarship applications and the FAFSA (seniors)

The plan is to meet monthly in the ASPIRE room during tutorial time to eat lunch together and work on anything college related. 


All grades 9th-12th will be invited to attend and participate. We would like for students to plan on attending these meetings on a consistent basis. 


The overall goal is to help students become better prepared for college and to have students help plan visits to the colleges that interest them the most. 


Please let Mr. Ojeda, Mr. Rooney, or I know if you would like to be part of this club!


**11th graders: I do have some of you on a list already from when you told me you were interested earlier in the year. I will make sure to get info to you once we get organized!

11th Grade - April - Get to Know a College - College Visits 

Jeff Bullock, KCSD Secondary Curriculum Director, has been working with the OSU Extension Office to develop an internship program for Basin youth. The pilot program will be launched this summer!


Any current 10th or 11th grade student may apply to be a part of this program. Students will be matched with local businesses and agencies based on their interests for a PAID summer internship. The internship will be 6 weeks long, between the dates of June 10th and August 11th (scheduling will be flexible). Students will be paid $1,000 in two $500 installments for satisfactory completion of their internship.


An internship is a great way for students to get real world experience in their chosen career path! Internships also look very good on college and scholarship applications!


Jeff and OSU hope to make 20 internship slots available.


If you are interested, please apply online at:
