ADVOCATE FOR YOURSELF!
Senior year can be a very busy and stressful year for students. We want to help you to get through this year with the least amount of stress as possible. We ask that students let their teachers, counselors, administrators and parents know of any questions, concerns or issues they might be having throughout the year. We can help you best if we know what it is you need.
COLLEGE REPRESENTATIVES ON CAMPUS
College representatives are scheduled to visit our campus throughout the fall semester. Take advantage of the opportunity to meet with them and find out about a variety of colleges. Listen to the bulletin for announcements and check on our website for details. You must sign up in the College and Career Center (2nd floor, main office) to take advantages of these wonderful opportunities.
Parents - are you curious if your son or daughter is attending school every day? Do you want to have access to their teachers' contact information? The best way to keep up with your students' records here at GHS is to get online and access Infinite Campus.

Please be aware that you can use teacher tutorials before, during lunch and after school to get help with assignments and to make up and turn in work! Whether you are having trouble in one of your subjects or not, tutorials are a great way to better understand the material being taught in the classroom and to get extra help from your teacher.
At Grossmont we want to stress the importance of every student having a plan following graduation and that is why students must complete their Post-Secondary Plan by the end of senior year. Grossmont. Counselors will be meeting with each senior to discuss individual plans and provide resources. The Post-Secondary Plan is a graduation requirement and it is listed under Additional Graduation Requirements in our student records system.
While community service is not a graduation requirement, it does look good on college and job applications. Hopefully you have kept a log of all of your volunteer hours in the Career Cruising portfolio or by hand. This will help make it much easier for you when you are filling out college and job applications.
There are opportunities for all grade levels. Your students can take advantage of the opportunities available on the Grossmont website.
