COUNSELING NEWS

Happy spring from the RBHS Counseling Department! In February, counselors visited all second period classrooms to talk to students about the course selection process and gave recommendations for making a map of their upcoming year’s courses. In March, the window to enter courses into Synergy opened. Students were given time in their second period classes to enter their desired course lists into Synergy. By now, all students should have input those courses so that we can start building the master schedule for the 2022 - 23 school year based on those selections.

Information about the STATE SEAL OF CIVIC ENGAGEMENT went out to our juniors and seniors. The deadline to apply is April 22. We also pushed out information for the STATE SEAL OF BILITERACY. Seniors who have taken up to level 7-8 of their world language may be eligible to apply. The deadline is April 1.


Applications for students to apply to be a Peer Counselor will be available on April 1 on www.rbhs.org. Click on Academics, and then Peer Counseling to find the application or contact Mrs. Changnon mchangnon@powayusd.com or Coach Jamal if questions jafelton@powayusd.com.


Counselors will be checking in with students who have earned Fs in any required coursework to discuss summer school. For more information on Summer School course offerings, please see our Alternative Programs website. For any questions about summer school, please invite students to speak to their counselor.

This has been a year of growth for many of our students. We continue to refer our students who are struggling emotionally to outside therapists, on a daily basis. If you have a concern about your student’s mental health, please contact their counselor. Having a trusted adult on campus for our students has never been more crucial. Our role as a counselor is to support your student with their academic, personal/social, and college and career goals.SENIOR PARENTS
