Counselors' Corner

Last week 6th grade students learned about the Georgia Career Information System which provides current and accurate occupational and educational information to schools and agencies throughout Georgia in order to help young people make informed career choices. Starting next week, 7th grade students will learn about the career development. Please be sure to talk with your child/children about what they have learned. They may access their plan on the portal to view the cluster choices. If you have any questions please feel free to reach out to the counselors Mrs. Pomera and Mrs. Danner.
