Welcome to the Sandy Creek Counselors' Page
We are happy that you are taking your time to review our site. We hope that you will find helpful information here.

In order to succeed in school most students need to put forth their best effort consistently. This includes but is not limited to:
- Regular attendance
- Being punctual
- Bringing school materials to class consistently (including charged Chromebooks and the accessories that go with the Chromebook)
- Listening to and following staff members' directions
- Paying attention in class and taking notes
- Turning in completed homework on time
- Reviewing their class notes daily
Students also need to have their basic needs met. These include but are not limited to:
- Enough nutritious food to eat
- Enough uninterrupted sleep (Most teens need between 8-10 hours of sleep nightly according to the National Sleep Foundation)
- Encouragement when they struggle
- Appropriate discipline when they are not fulfilling their obligations in earning their education
- To be told frequently that they are loved and valued
- To be reminded that learning is work and sometimes work is hard
- Having to work hard is not an acceptable reason to give up and quit
School counselors understand that there are times when what students need in order to succeed in school is not always readily accessible to them. When students require help in meeting these essential needs, school counselors work to help. Parents and legal guardians are encouraged to contact their child's school counselor via the counselor's email address if any concerns or questions arise. Counselors work hard to answer e-mails within a 24-hour time period except for weekends, holidays and summer break.

Dual Enrollment Student/Parent Information Mandatory Meetings
Students who plan to take any dual enrollment class next year, but have not already attended a district information meeting, must attend one of the two remaining information meetings with a parent or guardian. If student and parent do not attend any meeting, the student will not be eligible to take any dual enrollment class for the 2020-21 school year. For more information, see your counselor. The last information meeting will be held on March 10, at the Center of Innovation.
Advanced Placement (AP) Information Night
The meeting was held in January for students who were enrolled at Sandy Creek during the 2018-19 year.
Students who transfer into SCHS after the 2018-19 school year who have an interest in taking an AP class should contact their school counselor.
