Class of 2021 - The Places You'll Go

 Please help us celebrate the good news of acceptances for the Class of  2021!

Wellness Wednesday: Unwind and Make Memories

Happy Wellness Wednesday Red Devils!

On behalf the Sweetwater High's Counseling Department, we want to express our gratitude and appreciation  to all of our students, parents, and staff for your support and patience during this past school year. 

Our Sweetwater High community have all had to adapt, change, and learn new things to adjust to distance learning. Many of us also had to be brave, display optimism, and show perseverance in the face of Covid-19. We are all so proud of you and it is our pleasure working along side you. 

We hope this summer, you take the time to unwind and make fun memories as the world starts to re-open.

We look forward to seeing your in-person on July 21st. 



Self-Care Tip:
Read your letter to yourself from futureme.org. What did you accomplish? What are you proud of? What will you celebrate?



Kindness Challenge:
Write a thank you letter to someone who helped you this school year.


We all need someone to talk to, someone who listens, and someone who understands. Your Sweetwater High School Counselors are here for you. We are just an email, video chat, or phone call away.


Virtual Wellness Room

Please visit our Virtual Wellness Room to take a break from your online classes. Do some breathing exercises, stretch, or play a game. It's OK to take a time out in the middle of the day for a "brain break".

UC San Diego’s Virtual Triton Summer Academy

 

I am reaching out to promote UC San Diego’s Virtual Triton Summer Academy, TSA. The purpose of TSA is to prepare select rising high school seniors for an intensive, yet fun-filled, college academic experience at one of the country’s leading universities. This year for the health and safety of our students and community, TSA will be offered virtually via Zoom. This program is open to the graduating class of 2022. To be eligible for the program students must have an overall minimum GPA of a 3.0 or higher. Additionally, TSAis completely FREE for all participants.

Participants will also partake in extensive UC Admissions and Financial Aid workshop to provide a jump start on the college application process. Participants will be divided into small mentor groups led by a current undergraduate student. Students will remain in these small groups throughout the entirety of the program and will get the opportunity to connect with other prospective students from across the state. Additionally, students will gain a better sense of the Triton campus community by attending live information sessions from various campus partners.

Please see the flyer below for information on program dates, times, and the application deadline. We appreciate your assistance in sharing this information with your students. If you have any questions, please direct them to tritonsummeracademy@ucsd.edu

Wellness Wednesday: Keep Going

 Happy Wellness Wednesday Red Devils!

It's the last stretch of the most challenging school year we've ever had. You've made it this far, don't give up now. 

You will never regret the decision to not give up. You can only get through tough times by doing just that—going through it. The decision to keep going is the only way you can learn. Life gets boring if you stay in one place for too long.


So whether you are moving on from 9th grade to 10th grade, or moving on to from high school to the "real world", know you are strong, many people believe in you, and you can do anything you put your mind to!


Please complete our Wellness Wednesday survey to help us improve for next year.


Self-Care Tip: Affirmations. YOU are your best cheerleader. Remind yourself often: I am LOVED. I am WORTHY. I CAN DO IT!


Kindness Challenge: Write positive affirmations or inspirational quotes on small pieces of paper, then hide them in random places for strangers to find.


We all need someone to talk to, someone who listens, and someone who understands. Your Sweetwater High School Counselors are here for you. We are just an email, video chat, or phone call away.
