BHS Guidance Director Joe Attubato and Guidance Counselor, Emily Minty visited MSMS to talk to 8th graders about their future as high schoolers and beyond.

Joe Attubato, Burlington High School Guidance Director and Emily Minty, Burlington High School Guidance Counselor, visited the 8th grade teams today. Although only a short meeting, the primary topic covered was the Naviance Program. The Naviance Program has been used by the Burlington High School Guidance Department since 2006. This program is a college and career software program that helps students to identify career and college interests.

In late January all 8th graders will be given access to the program and will complete an assessment during homeroom. The information provided by the assessment will allow students to gain a much better sense of their strengths, weaknesses, likes and dislikes. While it is very early for MSMS students to know what career they would like to pursue, this information will be useful for students as they decide on which classes to take at BHS during their freshman year. More importantly 8th graders can begin the dialogue with parents about course selection, and future interests.
