Counseling Newsletter -- November/December 2022
Want to share your career with our students? Email Mrs. Hughes (email@example.com) to discuss!
Your student can explore careers virtually through WOW's Virtual Program. Encourage your student to visit all ten worlds, which include videos, information, and challenges to help students explore various careers in our area! https://waw-expo.web.app/
Students need a note (doctor or parent) to excuse their absence upon their return to school. Students should bring their excuse notes to the front office in-person before school, and they will be given an excused slip to show their teachers. Unexcused absences add up quickly, so please remember excuse notes to avoid truancy issues!
Teacher email addresses can be found HERE
One of the best ways you can support your student is to be informed about their grades and attendance. Please log in to PowerSchool regularly to check grades and attendance. Encourage your student to check PowerSchool and their school email each week (or each day!). This should be much easier now with student iPads.
Is your student struggling or missing work? Please reach out to your student's teachers individually to address concerns in their classes early.
Can't access PowerSchool? Email me for an access code if you are a first-time PowerSchool user. If you had an account last year, you will need to use your username and password from last year. No one at the school can reset or see your parent portal password; please use the Forgot Password feature if needed.

Meet Mrs. Hughes
I have lived in Tuscaloosa for 16 years, and I have a husband and two children. When I am not at school, I enjoy cooking, traveling, and spending time with my family.
