Counseling at Monnig Middle School
Attention Guardians and Students,
Course requests are the courses (classes) that your student has requested to take for the next school year. A course request is not a schedule. Schedules will be ready in August. A course requests is just what your student would like to take. We cannot guarantee that each student will get every course they requested, but we do our best.
At this time, the counselors have met with all students and gone over how to make changes to their requests. We have also sent emails to guardians so they can check in with their students on what they are requesting.
Please take a moment with your student to review his/her course request for next year. Here are the steps:
1. Have the student log into Focus.
2. In the top right corner, find the year 2020-21 and change it to 2021-22. The color of Focus will change to red to show you are in next year.
3. On the left side of the screen, select CLASS REQUESTS.
4. Your child should have 7 requests and hopefully alternates if they submitted their online forms.
*Please note your child may have 8 requests if they have semester classes. (That will be noted to the side.)
*Please note that your student's back up choices are noted with a 2 or 3 in the Elective Priority Column.
*Please note that the fine arts teachers are reviewing the elective levels to place your child in the correct level for next year.
If you have any questions, please reach out to your child's counselor. Students with last names starting with A-L are with Mr. Morgan. Students with last names starting with M-Z are with Mrs. Riggsby.
The Student Support Team has provided our annual mandatory guidance lessons on suicide prevention and what to do if a friend seems to be struggling in October of this school year.
Here is the PDF of that presentation. Please take a moment to review the presentation and talk to your student. If you need any assistance, please don't hesitate to reach out to us!
Hello Mustang Families,
