Starting the week of March 20th and continuing through the end of April, our counselors will meet with every 8th grade student individually to discuss their academic and personal goals, career interests, and preparation for high school. These meetings will last about 15-30 minutes and our Student Services Department will schedule them during study hall, FLEX, or during an elective class if necessary. We will do our best to avoid taking students out of class whenever possible. Our Student Services Department will send an appointment letter to each 8th grades student 1-2 days before their meeting so they can plan ahead if they might be missing part of a class. The counselors will use a Google Document during each meeting to take notes, which will then be shared via email with parents/guardians. We recommend that you discuss your child’s goals, interests, and action steps following their meeting after receiving the 8th grade conferencing document. If you have any questions please contact your child’s counselor.
