Academic Supports

The first semester of freshman year coming to a close and it is a good time to review your academic progress so far.

*Office Hours

*Content Area Support

*Homework Den

*Teachers

*NHS Peer Tutors

Please see your school counselor with any questions.

Freshman Sketch

Freshmen are encouraged to complete the freshman sketch in Naviance. This allows your school counselor as well as advisors to learn more about you and your interests. Log in to Naviance and complete the sketch this month!

4 Year Plan

Course selection is coming in February, and now is a good time to think about updating your 4 year plan in Naviance. Be sure to think about the pre-requisites that are required as you select courses. Please stop by the Counseling office for assistance logging onto Naviance or with any questions.

Create a First Resume!

While it may seem early, now is a great time to start your resume. A resume is a running list of extracurricular activities, work/volunteer experience, skills, and achievements. It is much easier to update a resume with new information as you move along, rather than trying to recall first semester of freshman year when you are finally a senior. Create your resume in Naviance and have the ability to add new information as many times as needed. Concerned you don’t have enough to start a resume? Find an activity or volunteer opportunity to get started---see your counselor with questions!

It's Not Too Late To Get Involved!
