Summer Update from School Counselors


Since March we all have been on such a unique journey. We know that everyone is looking for normalcy and answers as to what is next. Take this time this summer to relax and think about what you want your journey to look like.

School Counselors will return mid-August to begin preparing for the 2020-2021 school year. 

Please take a moment to read the weekly school counseling department newsletter during the extended closure.  It has resources for students and parents as well as updated information for Juniors & Seniors.  

2020-2021 Course Selection Information

 Listed below are presentations given to each grade level to assist students in choosing courses for the 2020-2021 school year.  Click on the grade level the student will enter in the fall of 2020.   NOTE:  These are large PDF files and are best viewed on a desktop or laptop computer.  It may take several minutes for the file to download and open.
