College and Career Planning helps students:

The 8th grade conference is an opportunity to review and obtain important information to assist students in transitioning to high school.  Parents will receive an invitation letter with details about using online scheduler.  If you are unable to use the online scheduler, you can also call Luana Hofeling , 801-481-4828 x 1017. Also, please feel free to contact the counselors if the online appointments will not work within your schedule.  We will try to build an appointment time that will work for you.

Your conference can be scheduled starting on: October 28, and through December.
