Counseling Center Reminders

Welcome back for the 2018-2019 school year. The first day of school for registered students is Monday, July 23rd.

 

*The last day to request course changes or electives was Friday, June 1st provided space availability and appropriate placement.

 

*Counselors will focus on resolving scheduling errors and balancing classes during the opening weeks. Students with mistakes or concerns in their schedules can see their counselors doing lunch. All students must address concerns in person during these times. Parents, please direct your students to follow the correct process and practice their self-advocacy skills.

 

*We are unable to honor requests for specific teachers, class periods, and other preferences. Counselors will work to balance class sizes to ensure productive learning environments and to meet teacher contractual limits. The addition or closure of classes may be necessary with changes in enrollment or staffing.

 

Please review the Eagle Eye Newsletter for other information regarding important events, SAT and ACT testing, and counseling services.

 

We look forward to another fantastic year at Olympian High School!

Did you know that most kittens and puppies are born during the spring and summer months? Unfortunately, many are born in the shelters. The caring staff at the Chula Vista Humane Society wrap the newborns, their mothers, injured animals and post-surgery animals in blankets for warmth and comfort. After each use, towels and blankets must be sanitized and bleached and wear out quickly. If you have any unwanted towels or blankets, please consider donating them. There will be a donation box in the main office, room 608 and room 609. Donations will be accepted until May 25th.

Google visits OHS!

Google Visits Olympian High School!

 

On October 10, 2017, five Google employees came to Olympian High and spoke to 18 Girls Who Code members.  Carrie D’Ascoli introduced her team peers to the club:  Ariel Yin, Yanting Zhang, Michael Schwartz  and ​Blair Kutzman.  They introduced themselves and talked about their backgrounds as well as how they got started at Google.  One engineer asked the girls why they joined the Girls Who Code club.  One girl, said since she was a little girl she always wanted to work at Google.  She was fascinated at how innovative Google is.  Carrie also talked about “being googley”, which she defined as being honest, transparent, and accepting of others, always doing the right thing, and putting the user first.  The team offered to come back in the future to see the projects they are working on.

More information about Senior Events and Activities can be found at OHS Class of 2018 Website

Important Reminders From Counseling Center:

There are lots of senior events coming up so be sure to make a note of what time and where you have to be so you don’t miss out. ALL seniors participating in the graduation ceremony must attend graduation rehearsal. Plan ahead and resolve schedule conflicts now (for example, talk to your boss about your work schedule now).

 

Official transcripts will be prepared for students who complete the “Official transcript request form” available in the counseling center. Be sure to note that you want the “Final semester” transcript. Students must plan to pick up final transcripts beginning the week of June 25 and mail them by the college’s deadline. Seniors planning to attend SDSU do not need to do this. SDSU transcripts will be sent automatically.

 

**AVOID SENIORITIS and stay focused on the goal of finishing strong. Transcripts are a permanent record requested by colleges, employers, the military, etc.

Lastly, if you haven’t already done so, stop by the college center and sign the “Class of 2018 – College Signing Poster” so that you can be represented and we know where your path will take you next.
