• High School and Beyond Lessons
       
    One Friday a month all students receive a High School and Beyond Lesson. The 6th grade lessons focus on personal awareness and how to be a good student. For 7th grade the focus is career exploration and for 8th grade the focus is transitioning to high school.

    **Eighth graders will take home their 4 year plans and work on them with their parents. The same HS and Beyond Lesson (in addition to FAQs) will be posted in video format on the counseling and block websites. The expectation is that all 8th graders will leave their HS and Beyond teacher with a finished 4 year plan on the March 24th date.
