School Counselors help students with all aspects of planning their academic courses and succeeding in school. Contact your School Counselor anytime with questions about classes or your child's schedule. If desired, request to meet with your child's counselor to discuss current or future classes and academic progress. These meetings may take place anytime year round.
Check your grades online anytime using your Campus Portal login. Grades are required to be updated each week, but information will not be "up to the minute". Students and parents may check with Mrs. Turek in the Counseling Office for their Campus Portal username and password, or if they are having trouble accessing online grades.
Need Extra Help?
For students who may be struggling with schoolwork, the best resource for extra help is the teacher. Contact your student's teacher to discuss current concerns and to request extra help. Every Tuesday students have the opportunity to receive extra help from their teacher during Intervention (held after lunch for about 40 minutes). In addition, many teachers offer before or after school help for students.
STARS Peer Tutoring (Students Teaching and Reaching Students)
This peer tutoring program is offered to any student that needs help with:
- Organizing homework
- Studying for tests
- Adjusting to the senior high atmosphere
- Completing homework
Talk to your School Counselor to set up a tutor. Parent permission forms are required. When introduced to your tutor, you will each select the time you would like to work together. (Example: Tuesdays and Thursdays before school or Wednesdays after school--whatever works for both of you). Students usually work together in the Upper Media Center.
Peer Tutors are trained in several areas before they work with other students: teaching tips, patience and understanding, CONFIDENTIALITY, being helpful and positive, and how to assist the student without doing the work for him or her.
Study Skills, Test Anxiety, Time Management
Contact your child's School Counselor to request an individual meeting for your child. The Counselor can help your child identify problematic areas and make an action plan for how to make improvements. Numerous written resources are available in our office.
A live online tutoring site is available through the Scott County Public Library System. Using your public library card, you can log-in and receive free homework help from 1:00-11:00 PM, seven days a week. This service is available to students in grades 3-12, and is offered in English and Spanish.
