Counselor's Corner

It is time to begin the 9th grade registration process for the 2018–2019 school year. In an effort to provide parents an opportunity to become involved in the high school registration process, informational meetings have been planned for 8th grade students and parents.

The high school counselors will be meeting with 8th graders on Friday, January 12 during the school day at ACMS.  Students will learn about graduation requirements, receive a copy of the curriculum handbook and a registration worksheet.  

A parent meeting will be held on Monday, January 22 at 7:00 pm in the Gretna High School theatre.  The entire registration process will be outlined and explained to parents at this meeting. Students do not need to attend this meeting. 

Starting on Tuesday, January 23, parents may schedule their registration conference online. The link will be available on the ACMS website and it will also be emailed. If you do not have access to a computer or are having difficulty with the site, you can call ACMS and ask for Terry Dostal at 402-332-3866.

The high school counselors will meet with 8th grade students and their parents for a registration conference on either Feb. 1 or Feb. 2 at ACMS. These conferences will last approximately 15 minutes each and begin at 7:30 am. Conferences will be scheduled on a first-come, first-served basis.  The time of your conference will not affect your child’s opportunity to take a class. 

During the registration process, we encourage students and parents to work together in deciding which classes to take.  Students are encouraged to visit with their current teachers regarding placement into classes, especially in math, science and English. Please bring the student’s completed registration worksheet to your scheduled conference time.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to call the high school counselors at 402-332-3936 or Mr. Dostal at 402-332-3866.
