Four-year planning night scheduled

Anna Wonderlich, Co-Editor

The Four-Year Planning Evening will take place on Wednesday, Nov. 2, at 6:30 p.m.
Freshmen students and their parents will meet in the BV commons and Performing Arts Center.
The night will include a PowerPoint presentation and time for students and their parents to sit down and go over their four-year plan.
Counselors will be present to help the parents and students.
Counselor Anne Dummitt said four-year plans can become very beneficial to students when making future decisions if a lot of thought is put into them.
“I think it’s really helpful if students take it seriously and really try to devote time and plan out their goals,” she said. “I think it will give them some sort of direction and make sure they’re on the right path to what they want to do.”
Dummitt said she advises the freshmen to begin with the end in mind when making their four-year plans. She also encourages students to choose classes wisely.
“Remember to be college ready, so take honors or AP courses,” she said. “Make sure to take lots of classes in the areas you’re interested in. For example, if you want to go into business, make sure you take lots of business classes.”
Dummitt said she is looking forward to meeting the parents and students at the Four-Year Planning Evening.
“It’s been nice getting to know some of the students,” she said. “I don’t think I’ve seen everyone yet, but hopefully by the end of this year, I’ll have been able to meet a lot of them.”
The freshmen need to bring a copy of their working four-year plans to the event.
Dummitt said bringing a Course Description Guide would be very helpful. This reference can be found on the Blue Valley website.
