Corbett Counselors Google Classroom Code is pkgpe6o
Hi Parents/ Guardian,
We would like to take a moment to reintroduce the Counseling department to your family. Mrs. Guastella, Ms. Arredondo & Mr. Villarreal are the counselors at your child’s school. We know that the days ahead will be different for us all and difficult for some of us. However, this need not be a bad time for your family.
We wanted to reach out to let you know that we will be sending out information for all students through our google classroom titled Corbett Counseling. We will be provided resources and guidance lessons to all 7th and 8th grade students through this classroom. This will be ready on Wednesday, March 25, 2020.
Updated Corbett Counseling Classroom Codes: pkgpe6o
Typically, in our school counseling program we offer resources to help students succeed in their academic goals, as well as support social and emotional growth throughout the school year. Because of the change to remote/virtual learning, supporting your student will look different. You and your child will get through this. We will all work together to continue to help your child grow.
Message for 8th grade parents:
PLEASE NOTE: This information was prepared not knowing that school would be closed for a few weeks. The deadline has been extended to submit a course change request to April 13th. If you haven't received this info yet, you should be receiving it soon.
In the mail, you will receive a list of the courses your student selected during pre-registration for the 2020-2021 school year. Please review the courses carefully with your child. Please keep in mind that if a course does not make or your student does not meet the pre-requisite(s) of a course he/she has selected, counselors will refer to alternates.
If you need to submit a change for your child, click on the link below and fill out the form. The information will go out to the Clemens counselors, to be processed.

PSAT Results were given to students along with their testing booklet and some handouts with information about the test, how students can use the results, and how it can benefit them.
