    Our High School Social/Emotional Learning Skill for March is Self-Management.
     Goal Setting is a great way to practice this skill!  
     

    We are the Freshman Academy Student Support Team and we are so excited to be working with Freshman this year! We meet with students on a daily basis to address their emotional, educational and social needs.

    Each day we get the opportunity to meet with students and learn many new things about each of them, which we love to do! There are many reasons to see the School Counselor. Click on the link below to find out why you might want to see your school counselor.  Reasons to See your School Counselor

    This year we are focusing our efforts on acclimating the Freshmen into High School, which can be hard for many students. We have set some goals for our Department that we would like to share with you. 

    Counseling Department Goals

    We feel that it is very important to educate Freshman on how important their first year is to the rest of their high school career.   Students, please take advantage of our Panther Enrichment Center.

    Get ready for all of the Exams that you will need to take during high school.  The PSAT is the first exam that you will take in 9th/ 10th grade.  Click on the following links to learn more about it.
