Today's the deadline: All rising seniors, juniors and sophomores must turn in course verification forms, waivers, and AP contracts for the 2017-18 year to boxes in Student Services, the Media Center or the Main Office. Course verification forms need to be signed by parents. Waivers need parent and teacher signatures, and AP contracts need parent and student signatures.
Reminder to rising juniors: The summer and fall enrollment paperwork deadline for the Career and College Program through Wake Tech is May 31. The fall course schedule will be out later in April. Time is running out; visit here for more information and to register for a mandatory information session to be considered for fall and summer classes.
Attention, students in AP classes: Enloe uses www.TotalRegistration.net to simplify exam registration. As part of the service, Total Registration will print student information directly onto answer sheets, removing the need for students to spend 30 to 60 minutes hand-bubbling the information onto the sheet. The information you provided during the registration will be printed as is. Please log into your Total Registration account to verify your information. It is critical that you review your information to confirm that everything is accurate before March 28. Inaccurate information may delay your access to scores in July.
Warning of a scam: The Wake County Public School System wants to make students and families aware of a scam company, College Level Exam, which is targeting high school students. The company is reaching out to students to sell a DVD claiming to assist with financial aid and scholarships, as well as college entrance. Families are being charged a large sum for services that WCPSS and Enloe provide for free. If you are looking for information about financial aid and scholarships, please check out this page.
Unlock the power of the Pre-ACT and PSAT: Did you miss the January PTSA meeting where we talked about Pre-ACT and PSAT scores? Fear not: Here are the presentations we gave on the Pre-ACT and the PSAT. Students who did not receive copies at the evening event will receive them through their English classes within the next few weeks.
A time of transition: The Student Services team is happy to welcome Mrs. Mary Jane Koch to our department as a counselor working with students whose last names begin with Je-Moq. (The other counselors and dean are working with these students for pre-registration and registration.)
Bell schedules: Wondering about the A/B bell schedule? Here's the information you need: the A/B schedule for the year, as well as early release, homeroom and regular daily schedules.
Learn more about anxiety and depression: What distinguishes everyday stress or sadness from conditions that are chronic? Take a look at these resource sheets on our Personal/Social > Anxiety and Depression link.
Food Pantry is available: The Enloe Food Pantry is available to students and their families. Hours of operation are 2 to 3:30 p.m. Tuesdays and Fridays, or by appointment. All visitors must check in at the Front Office before coming to Student Services.
What we do: Learn more about what counselors do and how you can contact them. These cards are available in English and Spanish.
You'll find Enloe's Student Services Department in the East building — the first door on the right as you enter the East.
Why speak with a counselor? We’re here for you. Whatever concern students have — from academic to personal to career — you can come to your counselor and find a place where you can share your concern and get help in addressing it. Students can make an appointment request for any time of the school day. Your counselor will try to meet the request. We do try to make sure we talk with you during times when it least affects your class schedule.
When you come from class to see a counselor, be sure to let your teacher know about your appointment and have the teacher fill out a hall pass so you won’t be marked absent. We are also willing to schedule meetings before or after school. You can reach us through these links:
A-Da: Ms. Greene
De-Ja: Mr. Small
Je-Moq: Mrs. Koch
Mor-Sc: Ms. Saviello
Sch-Z: Ms. Kirkpatrick
Please know that if you feel you’re in an emergency and need to speak with someone, you’re always welcome to come to Student Services. Depending on who is available, you may speak with your counselor or another counselor. Feel free to contact us throughout the school year. Student Services is not just our name — it’s our mission!
Note to students: The dates that switched from teacher workdays to full school days because of the snow days in January will retain the original schedule they were. This is how those days will look on the calendar.
