1st Semester Changes

The last day to try to make a change to your semester 1 schedule on a walk-in basis will be Friday, August 17. Starting August 20 all requests to change your semester 1 schedule will require parent/admin permission and approval. Class availability is very limited at this time. Use the following criteria to help you decide if you need to make schedule change:

1. You have taken and passed a course that is on your schedule.
2. You are a senior and are missing a required class for graduation.
3. You have the same course listed twice on your schedule.
4. There is a gap in your schedule (you are missing a period) or a SEE COUNSELOR.
5. You have not met a prerequisite for a class that is on your schedule.
(ex: scheduled for Pottery 2, but have not taken Pottery 1)
6. You want to make a level change (Diff/AP course to regular or vice versa).
7. Seniors only: you want to drop courses for pass periods/work experience (parent permission).

10-Week Family Grief Support Group

August 21 – October 30, 2018
Tuesdays 6:30 p.m. – 8:00 p.m.

This support group is for families with children ages kindergarten through 18 who have experienced the death of someone significant in their lives. Activities are designed to help youth express themselves through art, games and dramatic play, while adult caregivers learn strategies to support their bereaved children and process their own grief.

Whether the death was sudden or anticipated, recent or many years ago, Mourning Hope welcomes families to join our support group series, which is offered at no cost to participants. This group enables both youth and their caregivers to develop healthy coping skills and work through complex emotions associated with the death. Most importantly, children and teens will recognize they are not alone in their grief.
