Wellness Wednesday


Use your calendar to schedule “me time” to do something you enjoy.


Start a cycle of encouragement. Tell someone near you what you appreciate about them. They may return the favor when you need it most.

Counselor Message – Student Schedules

Welcome Back to the 2019-2020 school year. We are excited to work with our Triton students and look forward to another fantastic year! Here is important information regarding student schedules:

· Counselors are currently focused on enrolling new students, resolving scheduling errors and balancing classes during the next 2 weeks of school. There may be changes to student schedules due to balancing class sizes to ensure productive learning environments, meeting teacher contractual limits, and to open/ close classes due to changes in enrollment or staffing.

· Students can see their counselor during nutrition break or lunch to request an elective change. Parents may also schedule a meeting or email their student’s assigned counselor.

· Last day to make any elective changes will be August 2nd. Elective changes are limited and based on space availability and appropriate placement.

· We are unable to honor requests for specific teachers, class periods and other preferences.

We look forward to meeting you at Open House.
