Fall Guidance News Specific to Ninth Graders

Counselors will be meeting with their freshmen in seminars for the second time in the coming weeks to assist them in their transition to the high school – a new phase of their lives with all its exciting and sometimes exasperating challenges. Throughout the year, this series of meetings focuses on the composition of the freshman class; honoring diversity; understanding school procedures, rules, and regulations; becoming familiar with teachers’ expectations; understanding themselves as learners; reviewing study habits and decision making; as well as discussing other issues relevant to the freshman experience.

You are encouraged to call your child’s counselor at any time with any question or concern you may have as your child starts his or her high school career. We want to help to make this a most positive and productive period of growth for your children.
