10th Grade

Attention Parent/Guardian: The Counseling department has just concluded its Spring Programming with all Sophomores in their English classes. This year, we worked with students to develop their academic plans from junior to senior year. All students were notified that they will meet with a counselor each year to review and revise courses for the following year to ensure they are continuing to follow their academic goals and pathways. In February, all students will receive via the US Postal Service, a letter with the course requests for the following school year. At that time, students will have the option to make a formal request via a link to a Google Document to submit a Course Change Request. 
Below are the slides the counseling department presented to all 10th-grade English classes in January. It is recommended families review the slides to keep themselves informed of the information and resources presented to their student(s).

What to know: Throughout 10th grade, we would like students to begin thinking about what they are good at and what they like to do. Parents/guardians and students have access to Naviance to explore possible careers, colleges, and majors.
Please contact our College and Career Specialist, Ms. Kristina Canales Padilla ([email protected]), if you need assistance logging in to your Naviance/Family Connection account or would like your email or password reset.

How to support your student:

Encourage your student to attend a Study Hall class in which they need extra support. Use Flexisched to schedule every Study Hall for the week from Wednesday-Tuesday.

We are now opening up Flexisched from 8-10:15am every day. If you would like to change your Study Hall selection, you can log in to westmont.flexisched.net to change to an open spot in another study hall. At 10:15am, study hall selections are locked.

Be sure to make your initial selections on Wednesdays from 8-10 so that you have a better chance of getting in the study halls you want. After that time, you will be assigned to your Advisory teacher and will only be able to make changes to open spots. 

Encourage your student to attend tutoring in the library every Monday - Thursday. No registration or sign-ups required. 

Encourage your student to attend the Homework Center and meet with a Westmont teacher every Tuesday or Thursday in the library from 2:50-3:50. No registration or sign-ups needed. 

Encourage your student to meet with their counselor to sign up for free virtual tutoring. A student must have access to a cell phone, have their own personal email address, access to a computer, and access to a reliable internet connection.
