Auditions for Crew
Mr. Ko has announced that auditions to be part of the crew for the spring musical will be held in the auditorium after school tomorrow, Tuesday the 28th.
The eighth grade guidance counselor facilitates the High School Application/Admissions Process. Starting in the seventh grade, the guidance department facilitates a workshop on the application process . Students and parents are made aware that the seventh grade school year is an extremely important year as the high schools base their selection/admissions on the records from this year. Seventh grade report cards, standardized test scores in ELA and math, and attendance are all considered by high schools when selecting students. Please use this link for a copy of the High School Application Process Presentation.
From September through December, the guidance counselor will inform eighth grade families about steps in the application process, important dates and events, and open house and information sessions. There is an information session held at the school for families in the beginning of the school year to provide an overview of how to go through the application process.
During the first few weeks of school, a student survey is distributed to all students that must be filled out to inform the guidance counselor of what performing arts/audition programs they would like to receive tickets for. This is also how a student registers for the Specialized High School Exam and the audition for Fiorello H. LaGuardia High School of the Arts. The guidance counselor will then distribute tickets to students who pre-registered for these schools. Generally, announcements, tickets and the actual application are all distributed through the homeroom teacher. The guidance counselor facilitates the process by using HSAPS-The High School Application Processing System, an online database where all application information is monitored and entered by the counselor.
We understand the importance of the High School Application Process. The guidance counselor is available for meetings by appointment to discuss your individual child’s application and to answer questions and concerns regarding the process. In addition, the guidance counselor is available to meet with students throughout the school day regarding their application. Parents should encourage their child to see the counselor for any questions and support.
Overall, the guidance counselors are available to support parents and students throughout the process. Our goal is to ensure that parents and students are provided with the knowledge to make informed decisions regarding high school choices. We work with families to make this process as smooth as possible.
