The annual Career Action Planning (CAP) Conferences for Marion Junior High School and Marion High School students and their parents will be held this week on Thursday, March 16, from 4-8 p.m. and Friday, March 17, from 8 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
CAP has been an integral part of parent involvement for these Marion schools for over a decade. All MJHS and MHS teachers are trained to advise students about course offerings and graduation requirements. They meet with their advisees several times before the actual conferences to help students plan the courses they need to take in order to reach their career goals.
Parents and students have had a chance to look through this year’s CAP book, the annual publication of course offerings, to make decisions about next year’s schedule. The online version of the book is available from the MHS website at http://mhs.msd3.org/102616_2. When they attend their CAP conference, they will also pick up a current report card.
Current seniors’ parents may pick up report cards from the arena lobby. Brown’s Graduation Supplies will be on hand to deliver graduation order to seniors as well.
MJHS students and their parents will have their conferences in the MJHS cafetorium, while MHS sophomores and juniors will meet on the floor of the MJHS arena. Teachers from both schools will also be available upon request for conferences about grades and other parent concerns.
Mr. Elmer West, MJHS principal, and Mr. Lincoln Daniels, MHS principal, urge all parents to keep their CAP appointments because it is critical to student success that parents are involved in educational decisions. Teachers from both campuses want to help students succeed and meet the goals they and their parents have set.
Parents with questions about appointment times may call their child’s school office.
