Kicking off the 2022-23 School Year

High School Counseling Newsletter (quarter 1)

Welcome Back!

I hope you have all had a chance to unplug, enjoy the sunshine and connect with friends and family. I am looking forward to a successful 2022-2023 school year! I truly enjoy being a part of the dynamic team of professionals at NJSHS and my goal is to provide students with support and guidance during your time at NJSHS.

The beginning of each school year is full of possibility, and helping you get off to a good start is important for success. My role as your School Counselor is to be an advocate for you and work collaboratively with parents, teachers, administrators, and with our community. I can assist you with your academics, post-grad plans, and personal/social concerns. If you haven't already, please pop down to the Counseling Department to say hi and introduce yourself.

That being said, I know a lot of you know Mrs. Callinan, the Athletic Director, from last year, but this year, she is transitioning to the Director of the Counseling Department. In my absence during my maternity leave (expected return date 09/16/22), she will be able to assist you until I return.

Quarter 1 ends 11/04/22
