Happy New Year!

We hope this newsletter find you and your family well. Counselors are preparing to assist each Ranger with setting new goals for 2022! We will be meeting with each student individually over the next several weeks to review their individual academic plan. Some of the topics we will be discussing with each student are the importance of good attendance, grades, study habits and making the best course selections for next year. We want each Ranger to consider challenging themselves next year, to try something new, venture out of their comfort zone and take safe risks. :) These are exciting times. Rudder Counselors are here to help guide and support our Rangers through middle school. We look forward to partnering with parents in participating in this journey with their student.

Rangers LEAD!
