Evening Help Sessions

East counselors will be available to meet with parents and answer questions about the 2017 registration process and course selections on February 23, 28 and March 2 from 5:00 pm to 7:00 pm in room 152 (computer lab).  Although your student’s assigned counselor may not be available, our goal for these sessions is that the counselors in attendance will be able to answer general registration questions.  We regret that there will not be enough time during the evening sessions to create five year plans or do in-depth planning, we will continue to work on that with students during the school year.
