8th Grade Parents:

The middle school counselors recently introduced students to the high school graduation requirements, how to calculate a GPA, and how to qualify for Bright Futures scholarships. This Powerpoint Presentation shows what we discussed. Students were also introduced to the Naviance program in which they completed a career interest survey. Have your child show you their results! This program is available on the Links for Students page. Finally, they were all asked to review the ‘Four Year Plan’ and highlight the classes of interest to them. When your child meets their high school counselor for registration, this will be helpful.
