Freshmen Parent Update
From the Freshmen Counseling Team
The spring semester is moving along quite rapidly and we hope that you and your students have settled into a productive and healthy routine this school year. Our wish is for all freshmen to feel at home on campus and successful in their classes. If your student is still getting adjusted to high school, please let us know how we can assist them in settling into the Aragon community.
Looking ahead to spring, we are moving into a very busy time of year. It is hard to imagine, but students are now in the process of selecting their courses for sophomore year! We’d like to share a bit with you about how scheduling works.
Late last fall, we worked with the freshmen to create a Four-Year Plan in Naviance. Naviance is the college and career program that Aragon students utilize as they do planning for their post-high school goals. Students can take assessments, do college and career research and, ultimately, manage the college application process. One “tool” in Naviance is an activity in which students create a Four-Year Plan.
The creation of a four-Year Plan not only helped to introduce the freshmen to Naviance but also provided them with an opportunity to sketch out a course of study for their four years at Aragon. Students received information about graduation and college admission requirements and selected courses based on those requirements as well as their own interests and goals.
Is the Four-year Plan that each student created set in stone? No! This was an exercise to familiarize students with courses that are offered at Aragon. It also got students thinking about how courses build on each other, or progress, over the four years.
Can my student review their 4-Year Plan? Yes! They may access Naviance on the Aragon website (by going to “Students” and then “College and Career”) or clicking on this link: https://connection.naviance.com/family-connection/auth/login/?hsid=aragon
(Students then enter their e-mail and password to access the site).
We are in the process of visiting Freshmen English classes this week. Students are once again receiving information regarding college admission and graduation requirements. They are continuing to learn about course options at Aragon. Your student should bring home a green Course Selection Sheet by the end of the week. Please provide your signature, so that we can be sure you have had a conversation with your student about their options.
(Below is a link to the PowerPoint presentation that is being presented to the 9th graders this week in English class).
Do you have questions about the course selection process or how to help your student with college and career planning? If so, please attend the upcoming Freshmen-Sophomore Parent Night in the Aragon Theater on February 18 at 7pm. Counselors will present information that is relevant to parents of current 9th and 10th grade students about course selection options and the college-going process.
As always, when questions arise, please get in touch!
