LEHS Counselors' Corner
Bi-Monthly Newsletter - Sept/Oct 2015
Meeting with the counselors
If a parent would like to meet with their child's counselor, they can either email or call the assigned secretary to set up an appointment. It is our goal to meet individually with every student before the school year is out, so be on the lookout for an invitation to come meet with the counselor in the following months!
TWU Go Center/G-Force Program
The Go Center is set up in the library on Tuesdays from 10:00 AM to 1:00 PM to help students and parents. Any student that is interested in this resource should see Ms. Brown in the library for a pass.
On September 18th, LEHS started with Character Education lessons for the student body. These lessons will be presented to students each Friday throughout the year during advisory time.
For the first lesson, students viewed a a video over random acts of kindness along with completing a Self-Awareness Survey. Click on the video below to see what was presented to students.
What is e2020?
Little Elm High School uses e2020/Edgenuity for Credit Recovery. If a student has failed a core class they may be able to make up the credit through e2020. The classes are internet based and the student may progress at their own pace. Students are expected to maintain consistent progress and achieve a minimum passing grade of 70%. Credit is not awarded until the student has completed the entire course. Most students are assigned a class with a teacher who will help and monitor progress. Attendance is required and taken like any other class. The exceptions for attendance are students who are assigned to zero (0) hour on their schedule. These students are expected to keep in contact with the teacher assigned to them.
If you are behind in credits, e2020 may be an option to get back some of the credits you are missing. Please see your Counselor for more information.

After November 5th, if you withdraw from a course, your failing grade will be on your college transcript... You will then need to work with Mrs. Holloway on your plan to recover/earn this credit for graduation.
Please see Mrs. Holloway in House
