Counselor Check In

Hey Knights!

We know this new transition has many of you feeling anxious, frustrated and nervous. It's totally normal to feel all these feelings, especially when we aren't sure of what to expect and what's expected of us! In this newsletter we have some resources and tips to help make this transition a little smoother.

Just remember...Even though it seems like we have no control over anything right now, we can control how we react to it so don't forget to show yourself some grace, do what you can and be ok with it!


What you can do to prepare

As virtual classes start TODAY, it's important to try and get yourself back into a routine that includes dedicated time for learning. This is going to look differently for everyone and that's ok, we'll get there!

Here are a few tips and ideas that can help you be successful

  • Get plenty of rest
  • Shower and get ready for the day
  • Have breakfast
  • Use a planner or a weekly calendar that includes each of your teachers office hours, scheduled Google Meet times and code, and due dates
  • Set up reminders on your phones, Schoology, and email
  • Get up and move
  • Make a list of any questions you might have for your teachers and keep it with your device, for easy reference
  • During your Meet time- Be present, keep an open mind and cut your teacher a little slack, this is new for them too
  • If you need a break, take one. IT'S OK
  • SHOW THAT GORGEOUS FACE Your teachers miss seeing you! They expect you to "show up" for the designated class MEET time. * If you can't make it to your scheduled time, email your teacher as soon as possible to make other arrangements *
  • DO THE WORK! Assignments are posted by 8 am Monday morning, you have until 11:59 pm Friday night to complete them

** If you need help setting up a calendar or notifications please reach out to Ms. R at
