November Update

A newsletter from your Cen10 School Counselors

October in Review

Another month has come and gone and your school counseling team is excited to share with you all that we have accomplished this month.


To kick off October, your counselors presented to the Sophomore class and hosted a virtual Sophomore Parent Night. Parents were provided an overview of the programs and resources that Centennial has to offer. With many Sophomore parents in attendance, our counseling team discussed a variety of topics and highlighted information to support students through their academic journey. If you were unable to attend, please refer to our recorded video below.


October was also filled with opportunities to explore post-secondary possibilities. Ms. Villalobos, Centennial's very own College and Career Specialist, spearheaded College and Career Kickoff month. On October 13th, with the assistance of our Husky students, 110 booths covered the lawn. At every booth, students were informed on a number of UC and CSU colleges that make up California's higher education. In addition, the program Cozy Colleges assisted in providing 62 out-of-state and international college representatives to speak and supply our students with information regarding their prospective colleges.


The support did not stop there! In order to prepare students with their postsecondary aspirations, weekly, the counseling team provided students with workshops to assist with college applications and Finacial Aid support. We will continue to provide students with a variety of workshops in the coming months.


With every new month, your school counselors will continue to support every student with their academic, social and emotional, and college and career needs. Should you have any questions, feel free to contact your student's school counselor. We look forward to working with you and your students.
