Professional Development for Staff
Counseling CornerMs. Theresa Knight has been assigned to MYA as our counselor. She will be handling all counseling responsibilities including site-based counseling services to students and high school selection for our grade 8 students. Ms. Knight is at MYA each Thursday for the entire day. Please feel free to call her with any questions on this day, or to leave a message for her at school with any questions or concerns you might have.
HIGH SCHOOL SELECTION
Ms. Knight, Ms. Petrosky and Ms. Welshans will be working together on the high school selection process for all grade 8 students. During the month of October, we will plan an evening for parents of our grade 8 students so that we can apprise and familiarize you with the process and make you aware of important deadlines. Applications for admission are not yet available. Once they are are accessable we will distribute them to students. A number of high schools will be holding open house events for students who are interested in their programs. We strongly encourage you to take advantage of these oppoetunities since there is no High School Fair scheduled for this school year. Please feel free to call us at school with any questions you might have.
Below are the dates and times for upcoming open house events. Students who attend will not be marked absent or late provided they report to school immediately after the session is over.
