A Message from the Counseling Center
Happy New Year MGM Parents!
The School Counseling Center would like to invite you to see what your student has been doing with college and career readiness using Naviance.
You can access your student's results with StrengthsExplorer for 8th graders and SMART goals and Career Finder for 6th and 7th graders.
To access Naviance, log into your Power School account. Click on the arrow in the upper right hand corner of the screen and click on Family Connection.
Take some time and make it a family activity by having your student take you through the process!
