The counseling office is a safe environment. We encourage students to visit whenever they need emotional, social, or academic support.
INDIVIDUAL STUDENT PLANNING
Students and parents will meet formally with their assigned school counselor once per year during CCR Conferences (formerly known as SEOP) to review and discuss the following:
- Current academic progress
- Course selection for the upcoming school year
- Four-year plan (courses through high school)
- Graduation and college entry requirements
- Scholarship opportunities
- Academic and personal goals
- Career options
- College and other post-high school education
Students are encouraged to visit their school counselor at their own discretion. We also encourage friends, teachers, administrators, and parents to refer students who may benefit from counseling services. Collaborating with parents, teachers, and community members, we can better ensure all students receive the support they need. We are available in our office throughout the day to help parents and students with any concerns, which may include:
- Suicidal thoughts
- Grief and loss
- Personal/ social issues
- Concerns with classes or teachers
We regularly visit the students in the classroom and organize events that allow students to explore and develop personal/social, life/career, multicultural, and academic/learning skills. This curriculum includes:
- Career Exploration (7th grade CTE Intro lessons, Utah Futures)
- Character Education (bullying, life skills, compassion, social skills, goal setting, Internet safety)
- Reality Town (8th grade)
- Mock Interviews (9th grade)
9th Grade CCR Conferences are in full swing!
We are excited to meet with you and your student for their 9th Grade CCR Conference and get your student on the right track for graduation. The CCR Conference is a 15-20-minute Zoom meeting with the student, a parent, and the counselor to discuss the student's College and Career Readiness, academic progress, goal setting, and high school credits are addressed. Students will also be receiving information to select classes for 10th grade. The CCR is different than Parent Teacher Conferences. CCR Conferences are held through January 7th, 2021.
Your student received the following information in their geography class, please review the following presentation in preparation for your appointment: https://sway.office.com/ymNnUrQILKCBRjvQ?ref=Link
All CCR meetings will be held via Zoom, if your student is here in the building during the meeting, the student will be present in person and you as the parent will participate online through the zoom platform.
