Updates coming...

Hi BASE Families-

This week the team at the Future Center were working hard making edits and updates to the Counseling page on the BASE Website. Between Canvas, ParentSquare, Synergy, etc. it can all get a bit confusing so we are hoping to keep the Counseling Page fully stocked with everything you need to know! Please be patient with us while we work on getting our info updated...we are, after all, counselors, and not computer programmers. :)

How do I sign up for rep visits?

All upcoming rep visits are listed on the BASE website on the Counseling Page under College & Career. You'll see a button that says "Sign Up for Rep Visits" which will take you to a spreadsheet:

1. Add your name to the spreadsheet under the college visit you'd like to attend.

2. While at school, pick up a paper rep visit pass from the Future Center.

3. You'll need to get permission from the teacher whose class you are missing in order to be excused for the rep visit.

4. Hold onto the paper pass until the day and time of the rep visit as it will excuse you to attend the event.

5. Attendance will be taken at the rep visit and students will be sent back to class afterward.

All rep visits will happen in the BASE Library. Please note that at this time we are only offering the rep visits to 11th and 12th grade students.

This week, the Counseling Department will have students fill out our annual Needs Assessment in their CREW class on Tuesday. This survey helps our department determine the needs of our community and plan our year accordingly. We appreciate the participation of your students in this activity.

~College & Career~

Yay for the return of routines! Students are getting settled into classes and adjusting to the new/old schedule of a full week of school. As we move into a full-fledged fall, we have many events filling up the calendar. Most of these are still on Zoom, but students will be gathering in the library at BASE to attend college rep visits and Career Events.
