You are nearly to the halfway mark of your sophomore year! Which means you are three quarters of the way to the halfway mark of your high school experience!!! That's enough fractions for now... but it is a great reminder of how far you have come! This coming month will be filled with hours of revising, studying, taking exams, end of semester celebrations, time with family, friends, travels, and hopefully rest and relaxation.
In the counseling office we are here to cheer you on and help you get to the end-of-semester finish line!
Career Path Presentations MAIA Learning
!During October, you began career research in your seminar classes. You completed the Career Interest Profiler and matched some careers with you interests. After adding favorite/possible career options to your list on Maialearning, the next step was to complete the Career Path Investigation where you researched TWO career possibilities. This assignment included 38 questions to complete - including four questions that require a conversation with your parents. If you need assistance or have any questions regarding this assignment please email your counselor or stop in to the counseling office...we would love to have a visit from you regardless, to catch up on all things sophomore! Please be sure to complete the Career Path Investigation byDecember 4, 2018 so you can begin your Career Path Presentation!!!

Getting off the Grid
You have worked hard all semester. It's been a great year full of new friends, new sports, new clubs...even a new high school! You have been so busy that you haven't even had a chance to power off your computer or even your phone?!?
Well, you are in for a treat....winter break is (almost) here! And it's time to unwind, disconnect and immerse yourself...in nature, in a good book, baking goodies, with your friends, your family, your pet. Mike Vardy, the Founder of Productivityist, knows exactly what it means to be productive but needs reminders himself, to disconnect. Being productive includes a regiment that includes time off the screens, without notifications, to be free to let your creativity flow! So put on that auto-responder on Friday, December 14th and....sing with Michael...
Have yourself a merry little Christmas Let your heart be light From now on your troubles will be out of sight
Have yourself a merry little Christmas Make the Yuletide gay From now on your troubles will be miles away
Here we are as in olden days Happy golden days of yore Faithful friends who are dear to us TGather near to us once more
Through the years we all will be together If the fates allow Hang a shining star upon the highest bough And have yourself a merry little Christmas night!!!
