Program Helps Parents Get Students Ready For High School


The Payson Unified School District is presenting a program for parents to help their children prepare for high school.

Members of the guidance team at the high school have been working with the eighth-grade students in their career class and Achieve classes.

They have helped the students set up an interactive Internet account in the Arizona Career Information System to explore future career interests and are setting up a plan for classes they may want to take during their studies at Payson High School.

Parents are now asked to come to the Rim Country Middle School library to complete the transition process on one of four nights: Feb. 15, Feb. 16, Feb. 22 or Feb. 23.

The following activities are planned during this session: brief orientation; complete registration documents; receive a course description guide; and review six-year plan and complete form to request elective courses for next year with a Payson High School staff member.

Once the process is completed, parents will have received all information and completed all preliminary forms that will have their student ready for check-in next year as a freshman at Payson High School.

“We cannot state strongly enough how important it is that you take advantage of this critical opportunity to help you and your student get off to a good, well-informed, start at Payson High School,” said Don Heizer, head guidance counselor. For an appointment, contact the Payson High School Guidance Center at (928) 472-5725.
