LAJH Guidance News

February 2019

February is the month of love and it's a natural part of growing up for teens to develop romantic feelings for others. For adolescents, feelings of romance can be exciting, scary, or even confusing. It is important for parents to have conversations with their child about the emotions they are experiencing and how to be involved in healthy relationships.

❤️ Counselors visit LAJH

High school counselors will visit LAJH on February 21, 2019. Eighth grade students will be given information to help them complete a course selection sheet for their zoned high school. Just in case students are not accepted into a program at another high school, they will have a schedule created by school counselors at their zoned high school. If a student is absent on 2/21/19, they can pick up information from the Guidance Office, and should return the course selection sheet asap! If a student does not turn in a course selection sheet to the guidance office, they may be placed into high school classes left with openings.

*Please contact the High Schools for more detailed information.
