Welcome to the Clarke N. Johnsen Counseling Department




What is a student's "PCCR"?
The "Plan for College & Career Readiness" (PCCR) is an approach to individual student planning in which school counselors help students make successful transitions from grade level to grade level and set future plans. School counselors help students identify their interests, strengths, and abilities as students work towards setting goals. 
7th graders - 1st semester
This year, counselors will meet individually with 7th and 8 graders and their parent/guardian in a 20 minute PCCR appointment. During the first semester (now - Jan) counselors will be meeting with 7th graders. (Second semester, Jan-May counselors will be meeting with 8th graders. Dates for 8th grader appointments will be posted in January)
Important dates!
PCCR's for 7th grade students are in progress. Students will be pulled out of class and their PCCR held without a parent/guardian if their appointment for a Semester 1 PCCR is not scheduled on Calendly by Monday, Sept. 27, 2021. Counselors are required to meet with students and we encourage all parent/guardians to attend with their student if they are able. EVENING PCCR's: Tues 10/5 & Tues 11/9 - both nights need to call or email your student's counselor directly as these appts can't be scheduled through Calendly. 
Please schedule now!
Scheduling now allows you to select the day/time that works best for your schedule. Counselors will assign appointments to students if a parent/guardian has not made an appointment by the deadline and will start meeting with students beginning on Wed. Sept.15th. We look forward to meeting with you and your student!  PLEASE TYPE IN YOUR STUDENTS NAME (not the parent/guardian) SO WE KNOW WHO THE APPT IS FOR.

Lunch and learns are an opportunity for students to be introduced to different programs that will be available to them in high school in CTE (career and technical education).  Each month, students are invited to sign up and attend.  They are held in Mrs. Hitesman's room during all 3 lunches.  Students attend during their lunch period and are provided a lunch while they sit and listen to a presentation on the topic for the month.
