Junior Presentations

The Guidance Counselors of the junior class began the future planning presentations this past week and will continue after the holiday break.  Students were introduced to the guidance curriculum on Naviance, which included the Game Plan, Brag Sheet, Career/Occupational Research, Creating a Resume, College Search, and developing a list of "Colleges I'm Thinking About".  Juniors were given a packet of information, were encouraged to share their Naviance portfolio with their parents, and to continue working on the above tasks at home.  Students were also encouraged to go onto college websites and set up individual college tours directly on the colleges' admissions page. Juniors were reminded that they are allowed 3 excused absences if the college visit form is completed (copy of the form can be found in their packet)." Presentations will continue after vacation, followed by individual meetings with guidance counselors. The PowerPoint will be available once all presentations have been completed, and in March parents will be invited to learn more about the process at our annual Future Planning Night.
