From the Counselors
Join the ACES counselors when we return from break on Friday, January 6 from 8-9AM in the ACES High School Library (and on zoom)! This month we'll be talking about how to help your student stay motivated. We will also have an open Q&A opportunity for parents to connect directly with our counselors and High School and Beyond coordinator. (Click here to find the zoom link).
Seen Around School
From Anne Windsor's Cooking for Wellness class:
"It has been a fun semester so far in Cooking for Wellness. We started out learning about food safety and sanitation along with cutting skills. We then focused on breakfast foods and we learned about baking. We made scones, waffles with homemade whipped cream, and cinnamon rolls. We also learned how to make an omelet. We will finish up the semester with learning how to prepare simple meals."
If your student is in Anne's class, ask them to show you what they've learned--or better yet, cook you a meal!
Patti Stracener, College and Career Specialist
Hi, I am Patti Stracener and I have three roles at ACES High School. The first is that I am the High School and Beyond Specialist and it is my job to make sure that all of our students have explored careers, learned their skills and preferences, and planned their post-secondary education or training for the next chapter in their life.
My second role is the College and Career counselor. It is my job, again, to help students take the next step in their education, whether that be the military, college, or tech/trade school. I make sure that they have applied to any of the options they have, worked on their financial ability to finish those options and that they have the support needed to make the transition.
My third role is as the on-time graduation specialist. I work with students to find the best plans for them to catch up on credits, finish their requirements in full, and decide what program best suits them to get out on their own on time if possible.
If you have any questions or needs that come up, or you just want to chat about your student and make sure that all is going as planned, feel free to contact me at any time. You may call me at the office, text me at the number provided below, or email me if that is easier. I am also available by zoom or facetime if you would rather.
