MMHS Counseling Newsletter February 2021

Registration for 21/22 begins this month. The process for registration has changed some want to ensure that students follow the instructions and helps we have on our Counseling website. Counselors will be presenting to Sophomores and Juniors the 18th and 19th of February and re-visiting their classes the following week to help students enter their courses into I-Campus. This year we have done away with registration forms, so students will utilize our MMHS General Education Planner to plan their courses according to graduation requirements, career pathways, and their interests.

IMPORTANT: Counselors receive many requests from parents during registration to schedule appointments with us. We are unable to plan those meetings into our schedules during this time, so we ask that you send your questions via email or have your student come in and see us between classes, at lunch, or before or after school. Most questions can be resolved that way and it provides more time for us to meet with more students.
