Oswego High School Counselors Present: Student Services Expo 2011!

OSWEGO, NY – The OHS Student Services Expo 2011 will be held on March 7 from 6:30 – 8:30 p.m. at Oswego High School, beginning in the Ralph M. Faust Theatre.

It is open to all students in grades 7-12 and their families.

Come learn about academic, community, and counseling services to promote students’ personal development from middle school to high school and beyond.

High school counselor Marilee Taylor said, “We counselors are very excited about this. We brainstormed how we might engage our families by delivering relevant information in a fresh, unique way. It’s never too early for students to think about their future, whether it’s college, military or work force.”

Throughout the night, there will be informational tables located in the high school café with information from various labor unions, military, and community agencies with resources available.

The expo format of concurrent sessions will provide attendees the chance to choose the presentations that are most personally useful.

Choices include topics such as covering the college application process, NCAA rules, internet safety, graduation requirements and dealing with anxiety.

High school counselor Lisa Roman added, “We created the expo to address certain needs we have identified, such as improving the transition from middle school to high school as well as promoting more school unity. Opening the expo to grades 7-8 offers those students and parents an opportunity to visit OHS while also learning about important hot topics such as internet safety and high school graduation requirements. They will also get the chance to meet the counselors and other students who will be volunteering or attending the sessions. It seems to be a win-win situation for everyone.”

“We welcome our community as we showcase our high school with an exciting, fresh program, one of many progressive best practices that happen at the high school every day. Building futures together is what it’s all about!” she added.
