IMPORTANT SCHEDULING INFORMATION:

Last week, students were given draft Course Request Forms—CRFs—(white copies) to begin discussions with parents and teachers about classes for next year. Between now and the end of February, counselors plan to meet with each of their students and complete the student’s 4-year plan as well as their official CRF (yellow copy). Counselors will provide students with a yellow copy of their request to take home for parent review and signature; however, given our tight turn-around, we must enter all requests by March 3rd. Therefore, if we have not received the form back, counselors will enter what they have from their meeting with the student.It is important for students to choose their courses wisely—they should pick electives they are excited about and interested in, challenge themselves in areas of strength and interest, and balance their expected homework load with their extracurricular activities. Although we make every effort to accommodate class change requests in the fall, it is becoming increasingly difficult to move students given the growth we are experiencing. If you have any questions or concerns about your student’s courses for next year please email the counselor. If you have any trouble connecting with a counselor, please contact Lynette McCracken, Director of Counseling.
