What's going on in the counseling department this month?

This month we are focusing on our juniors. We began pre-registration for our juniors (rising seniors) during the week of December 7-11. The following week will be our "Junior Jumpstart" meetings where we will begin helping students navigate the college planning process and planning for their senior year. We are providing these lessons during English 3 and AP Language & Comp classes- so some students will be met with now, and others at the beginning of next semester.

Juniors should have brought home registration forms on Friday, December 4. We ask that parents look over their students course requests and sign the form. (Don't worry, students will have plenty of opportunities later to make changes. However, it is important to take this step in the process seriously since we use these numbers to make the schedule for next year!)

*We will begin the pre-registration process for underclassmen in February!

December Coffee with the Counselors

What did you miss?

Our meeting on December 2nd focused on registration and helping students pick classes that are right for them. As counselors, one of the many things we helps students with is course selection. We monitor students progress and work to ensure that they are on track for graduation and are taking appropriate courses that they enjoy. That said, parent input is extremely important. Please talk with your students about which classes they are thinking of taking and offer guidance from our unique and valuable perspective!
