Have you considered your future?

Every year around the same time, the counselors come into English classes and give a presentation. The counselors come in, give a thorough speech about your current classes, college, graduation requirements, ways to make up credits, and new classes for next year.

"I think the presentations were beneficial to the students because it gave them a feel as to where they're at academic-wise and whether or not they'll be able to graduate," said junior counselor Mr. Alejandro Gutierrez.

The counselors came bearing gifts of transcripts and schedule choices for the next year. They explained that if you're failing a class you can do APEX, CHARGE, or summer school to make up the class.

CHARGE, APEX, and summer school are programs to make up credits. CHARGE is a course instructed by a teacher, while APEX is a self-directed computer course with a teacher present. Both are very effective if the student is determined to succeed in making up his credits.

Counselors also talked about the classes you might be advanced in. If you're advanced or you find a class easy, it was suggested you take an honors or AP class to challenge yourself.

"Ms. [Lori] Blackburn coming into my class was a good experience. She talked about stuff I didn't know about and I'm glad she explained it all," said Taylor Marshall, a sophomore at FHS. Overall, the presentations were both enlightening and needed for all of our students.
