There are many ways to get help during your freshman year. Whether you need help with your classes, tutoring or have general questions, these are some resources you can use.
Student Services is available on Monday-Friday at 7:15 am to 2:45 pm. This is the office where you can find your counselor. The least busy time is before school–if you need a schedule change or have a concern, dealing with it early in the day can give you peace of mind. You can make appointments to make with your counselor at the front desk of student services before school or during lunch. They will also make appointments with you and you will receive a pass during class.
Each counselor has a different set of students from 9 to 12 grade. Everyone is assigned their counselor by the first letter of their last name. Counselors can meet with you to discuss grades, schedules or colleges that you’re interested in. If you have any questions about graduation requirements talking to counselors can be helpful.
Tom Kraft – If you have any questions about your HSA score or PARCC scores you can talk to Mr. Kraft about it. He will inform you about your scores, especially if it doesn’t get mailed to you. His office is in the assistant principal’s area.
Ask your teacher to pull you for PREP for clubs and to catch up on your schoolwork from a certain teacher
Tutoring can help you catch up on your classes and get help from other people about math, English, science and other subjects.
Mrs. Shiderly helps with tutoring. She is an SEIA here for many years. Her classroom is available after school from 2:15 to 3:30 located in C204, as well as lunch and prep providing all subjects. Her classroom is a very quiet and relaxing place to study or catch up on makeup work. Students from honor societies help with tutoring, which means there’s a lot of one to one help. There is usually at least one person from an honor society every day.
Mrs. Tracey Cassidy is the reading specialist. Her office is located in C202, next to the elevator. She provides morning tutoring from 6:30 to 7:15 only on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Her room is another great resource of a quiet room and a great place to catch up or study.
