Counselor's Corner

Galatia Unit1~Mrs.Hamson

What does the guidance counselor do?

You may be wondering what services the guidance counselor offers to the school district. Here are a few things that my job entails:

  • Scheduling student classes
  • Testing (PARCC, SAT, etc.)
  • Monitoring Academic Progress
  • College & Career Readiness
  • Counseling
  • Scholarships
  • College Applications
  • Financial Aid (FASFA)
  • Identifying resources for students & their families

Feel free to contact me at the school or via email: at any time if I can assist you or your child in any way.

Sign Up For Text Reminders

This school year I will be using the Remind App as a communication tool for students and parents. Information that is sent out will be grade specific and might include information about standardized testing, scholarships, deadlines, etc. To subscribe, send a text message to "81010" with the code listed below that matches your graduation year in the message:

  • @galatia22
  • @galatia21
  • @galatia20
  • @galatia19

For example, freshmen students and parents will send a text message to 81010 with the message @galatia22 in the body of the message.

Social Media Snipets

We are launching a brand new school website which will have so much useful information. There is a section on the website dedicated to Guidance. Be sure to check out the information there, you will find scholarships, newsletters, and other important information. Be sure to follow the Galatia Unit 1 Facebook page, in addition to the Galatia Unit 1 profiles on Instagram and Twitter. This is a great way to stay informed with the most current information about school events, district testing and scholarship opportunities!
