We hope that the start of the 2020-2021 school year has been a great one! We wanted to take a moment to update everyone of important upcoming events and activities happening in the RHS School Counseling Department this Fall.
College Representative Visitations to RHS: Students can sign up for virtual colleges that are visiting the RHS School Counseling Department via Naviance.
Senior Checks: We are in the process of meeting with each 12th grade student to go over the following key items:
Transcripts (making sure students are ready and on track to graduate)
Future plans (College/Career)
Use of Naviance to request transcripts, request letters of recommendation, search for scholarships, and further college exploration
Other possible items of discussion include: community service, continuation of college/career exploration, etc.
Junior Checks: Counselors will meet with each 11th grade student to continue to help navigate and explore college and career pathways, discuss goals and future plans, thoroughly review transcripts and graduation requirements, and provide students and their parents an opportunity to meet one on one with their school counselor.
FUTURES DAY: Thursday October 29th, Revere High School will be holding its annual Future’s Day. All students in grades 9-12 will have the opportunity to participate in an activity that is directly related to continuing their future planning.
AP Changes: Students and teachers in Advanced Placement courses will now have access to new online resources from The College Board. All AP students will work with their AP teachers and the RHS AP coordinator to access the College Board website as well as “join” the class in which they are enrolled in. Payment for AP tests must be completed in EZ Pay by November 1st.
ADAP: Adolescent Depression Awareness Program-https://www.hopkinsmedicine.org/psychiatry/specialty_areas/moods/ADAP/index.html
In conjunction with the health classes, counselors utilize the ADAP Program from Johns Hopkins University to increase awareness and decrease stigma about mood disorders in young people while stressing the need for evaluation and treatment.
Our Department will be continuing this beneficial and crucial program in the next few weeks to all Health classes.
We will continue to send out relevant updates and reminders throughout the school year. The RHS School Counseling Department looks forward to working with each of you.
Thank you for all that you do! Please do not hesitate to contact us with questions or concerns.
RHS School Counseling Department: Mr. Nicholas DePompei, Mrs. Emily Rion, and Mrs. Elizabeth Long
