Senior Meetings and Individual Appointments
Seniors participated in a large group meeting during the first week of school led by Mrs. Harmer, D200 Career Facilitator. She outlined the appropriate next steps for various post-secondary educational and training goals, including college applications, meeting with military representatives, applying to trade schools, as well as the financial aid process and resources to use for scholarship opportunities.
During August and September, every senior is scheduled for a one-on-one session with their school counselor to discuss specific details of their personal process.
While the large group Senior Meeting has ended, you can still watch the Senior Meeting video.
In February, Seniors will participate in a presentation with counselors focusing on the steps they should be taking in the last semester of high school to be prepared for their post-secondary plans. They also will complete a Xello online lesson regarding Career Backup Plans. Students are encouraged to return to their Xello page to complete other grade-level appropriate lessons to help them prepare for life after high school.
