FORECASTING WEEK!!

FORECASTING WEEK!!
Tim Mowery

Attention families and students: It’s FORECASTING WEEK! This week students will be submitting a Google Form to select their classes for the 2024-2025 school year. It is always an important step for parents and caregivers to review their student’s forecasting to ensure they have made good choices for their future. When students’ submit the Google Form, there is a spot for parents/guardians to type their name, indicating they reviewed their student’s choices.

 

Here is a breakdown of the schedule for Forecasting week:

 

Monday (2/12):

  • In Advisory, students will get a copy of their Transcript, a copy of grade-specific worksheets*, and go over a presentation that will cover how to read a transcript, how to use the worksheet as a draft, and picking classes intentionally.

*The worksheet is to be used as a helpful tool/guide for forecasting. It can be used as a draft to help students map out their forecasting choices and use it as a tool for when they submit the Forecasting Google Form. Do not turn in the worksheet please!

  • After Advisory, students will attend grade-level presentations with the counselors in the Auditorium. 

    • 11th grade: 3rd period

    • 10th grade: 4th period

    • 9th grade: 5th period

    • AM CAL students: 6th period

Students need to check-in with their class teacher first before heading down to the Auditorium!

 

Tuesday (2/13) and Wednesday (2/14):

  • During lunch time, counselors will be in the 1st floor Commons to answer any forecasting questions students may have

  • Students should be checking in with their teachers to ensure they are signing up for the correct level of coursework for them.
