Senior Reminders: 12th grade homerooms met with their counselors on February 11th to review some important information about finalizing college applications and finishing out the school year. Review the Power Point and access the handouts (including the mid-year report form for 4 year colleges) under the "senior information" tab above.
Senior Community College Registration Information:
Seniors who will be attending any California Community College including IVC or OCC must complete matriculation (a multi-step process) in order to receive preferential enrollment for Fall 2015. Seniors should see Mrs. Carrington or Mrs. Barro in the Counseling office for more information.
Teen Stress: Although stress is a normal part of life, and teen stress has always been an issue, the intensity and frequency of those stressors have increased in recent years. According to a Feb. 2014 study by the American Psychological Association, approximately 1/3 of teens polled described their level of stress increasing over time and over 40% of that same group report not doing enough to manage their stress. What can you do? Students and families are welcome to talk with their assigned counselor about stress related issues and possible coping strategies. Resources and information about teen stress are also available under the "parent resources" tab above.
