LUNCH & LEARN
To assist students in selecting a combination of courses for the 2020-21 school year that will challenge, yet not overwhelm, the counselors and teachers have developed a schedule of lunchtime presentations to provide information on course and teacher expectations as well as an indication of the time commitment. Information regarding math and most world language options will be presented to students during their current courses. Please review your student's course and extracurricular choices to ensure a healthy and well-balanced schedule. These lunchtime presentations start this week:
The Counseling Department utilizes a systematic approach for providing pertinent information to students. By having the same counselor throughout high school, continuity is maintained and counselors build on gathered information to reinforce individual expectations.
Counselors see students whenever there is a concern. Situations are brought to the counselor’s attention by a teacher, an administrator, a parent/guardian, or by another student. Students may request to see a counselor whenever they have a need. For an appointment, students complete the Request to See Counselor form available in the Counseling Office. Students are seen as time permits. In the event of an emergency, students will be seen at once. Parents should feel free to contact counselors. Assistance may be given via the phone, e-mail, or in person with an appointment.
