Parent Workshop Description

Career Choice Friday, January 9 at 8:00 am: Is your student undecided about what career she wishes to pursue? Does he/she know the skills required by certain careers? This workshop will show parents how to assist their students in using NAVIANCE to explore careers and their requirements.

PSAT Scores are In!

The Counselors held two assemblies on December 11 to discuss PSAT results with students who took the PSAT in October. Student score reports and test booklets were given out and students were shown how to read and interpret their scores.

Counselors also discussed the National Merit Scholarship programs, how to improve test scores, and how to determine if the student's scores will help him/her get into a college of choice.
