COUNSELING CORNER-FEB 2012
Pre-registration for next year is just around the corner.  Counselors will be presenting important information to students regarding the registration process through their English classes from January 31st to February 8th, 2012. Students will complete their registration through their online Naviance account.  Pre-registration on Naviance should be completed by February 17th.  Counselors will be available for questions and to assist with the registration process until that time. The pre-registration process is important to ensure all students take the courses they need not only for high school graduation but for college readiness.   Parents should discuss with their child the courses planned and their future goals.
 
The college search and post high school planning process will begin for juniors at the Naviance kick off assembly on Tuesday, February 14th , during second period.  All juniors are required to attend.  Juniors will also complete their junior conference with their counselors sometime during March through May.  Counselors meet individually with junior students to review:
