Setting Yourself Up for the Next Step: Managing Expectations

Wednesday, October 6, 2021, 11:30 a.m. - 1:00 p.m.  

As our students enter high school, there are many challenges they face. There is a lot of discussion about grades, ACT scores, and college acceptances. These discussions can have an impact on students’ self-esteem.  Come hear Kate Berry, BSM Guidance and College Counselor and Dr. Jules Nolan, psychologist, and author, discuss the importance of managing expectations and how to avoid the mindset “you are only as good as your numbers.”
