Counselors Prepping Seniors to Graduate

Seniors have received important information to help smooth the path to on-time graduation, reports Head Counselor Daniel Lee.

In addition, counselors have been visiting Senior Language Arts classes to ensure that students understand what’s on the Gradation Checklist.

[Students also were advised, via email, about the college applications process at Garfield. Counselors followed up with further information on the process, and covered topics such as scholarships, financial aid and career pathway options.

For a sample of that information, review the Garfield College & Career Resource Sheet students received last month.]

If a student is not on track to graduate on time, a counselor will reach out to both the student and family, said Mr. Lee, who added, “We are emphasizing to students the importance of being experts in understanding their own graduation requirements.

“We recommend parents check in with their students and review the Graduation Checklist they received in LA classes together. Counselors are happy to field any specific questions or concerns about grad requirements.”

Mr. Lee points to the School Counseling website as a good resource for information.
