Academics

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.  

Online Grades

Class grades are available online using the Campus Portal login.  Grades are required to be updated each week, and information is not immediate.  

Students and parents/guardians may check with Ms. Zimmerman 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, often, the best resource for extra help is the child's teacher.  Contact your child's teacher to discuss current concerns and solicit suggestions. 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.  School Counselors can help your child identify problematic areas and make an action plan for how to make improvements.
