Writing a Personal Mission Statement - Setting the focus for the post-secondary theme of junior year, students reviewed sample personal mission statements and then they did an activity from "The Seven Habits of Highly Effective Teens" called "The Great Discovery" in order develop their own personal mission statements. 

Goal Setting - At the start of each school year, students in all four grades are asked to write two S.M.A.R.T. goals (one academic in nature and one other goal). They meet one-on-one with their advisor at this point. They will then assess the progress made toward achieving these goals during a mid-year conference and again at a year-end conference with their advisor. 

Meeting with Counselors - School Counselors will be visiting each junior SSP to begin discussing post-secondary planning.
