    Hello Huskies,

     

    Second semester begins Monday, January 30.  Students will go directly to Husky Headquarters (advisory) upon arrival on Monday morning to get their final second semester schedule.  View Monday’s bell schedule here.

     

    We are changing the bell schedule slightly for second semester, as we are moving from three lunches to two lunches.  We are excited about this change and will keep any teacher or student from having a split third period class with lunch in the middle.  The new bell schedules are on our website, or they can be accessed here and here.

     

    Students with questions about their schedule should see their counselor at the Counselors’ Corner. Note: course corrections ended at the beginning of the year.  While we are not opening the door for change of heart requests, we will consider course corrections for students who may be enrolled in a course for which they already have credit, enrolled in a course in which they have not met the prerequisite, wish to increase their level of rigor, or need to add a course required for promotion or graduation due to fall semester course failure(s).

     

    For information on post high school planning, career development, internships, leadership, pre-college programs, volunteer opportunities and more, visit the HHS Career Services website and the HHS Student Services website.  View the Husky Career Corner January newsletter here.

     

    Junior Conferences begin Tuesday, February 2 and continue through the month.  Counselors collaborate with 11th grade teachers to schedule these individual meetings during the school day.  During the conference, students will confirm remaining courses/credits needed to meet graduation requirements, discuss tentative post high school plans, including institutions to which they are planning to apply, and create a to-do list of action items based on the student’s individual goals.  Encourage your student to develop a list of questions for their counselor regarding graduation requirements, course registration for their senior year, and post-graduation planning.

     

    As part of Financial Aid Awareness month, NCSEAA and CFNC are pleased to bring families the How to Pay for College weekly webinar series (Thursdays, February 2-23). Students and their families are often confused about how to bridge the gap between family funds, financial aid, and the total cost of paying for college. Funding a college education shouldn’t be a mystery. Having a better understanding of the funding landscape can help families build a sound plan so students can focus on their studies.  More details and registration information can be found on the Student Services calendar here.

     

     

    Senior Specific Information:

    Don’t miss out!  The January Scholarship Bulletin is here. Paper copies are available in Student Services or the Counselors’ Corner.

     

    Seniors seeking to reduce their course load for spring semester may submit completed forms to their assigned counselor by Friday, February 3. Applications can be found here or paper copies in Student Services.
