Dear Parent/Guardian:

We are hoping to see parents of all 7th, 8th, 9th, 10th, and 11th-grade students on Thursday, February 25, 2021, for CAPS conferences.  The purpose of this conference is to sit down with your child and his/her CAPS advisor for a visit that will help us to provide the best curriculum possible for your child.

CAPS (Career Action Planning for Students) is a program that provides each student with a personal advisor to help plan coursework that will support academic and career paths.  At Cutter Morning Star, we believe that course selection is a critical component of quality education and that parent(s), student, and school should be involved in the decision process.  These conferences help us make decisions that involve proper staffing, and a schedule that will allow us to best utilize every resource possible to try to make the high school experience the best that it can be.

CAPS advisory sessions will be held each week, from 12:30 to 1:00, on these dates:  January 21, January 28, February 4, February 11, February 18, and February 24.  All students, including virtual students, should attend these sessions.  Each session has a specific task, which includes a transcript analysis, completing or revising the graduation plan, and course selection for next year.  These tasks are difficult to complete unless students are present, so every student is encouraged to attend in person so that they can have the help and advice of the CAPS advisor. 

On February 25th, your conference will consist of reviewing your child’s transcript, graduation requirements, and courses selected for the 2021-22 school year.  Conferences will begin at 1:00 p.m., with each session lasting 15 minutes, and ending at 7:00 p.m.  We ask that you make it a priority to keep your allotted time slot which you will find at the bottom of this letter.  Our staff is very excited to have the opportunity to work with your family in helping plan for your child’s future.

If you have any questions, please contact your student’s advisor via email.  I urge you to make this night a priority, and we look forward to seeing you on the 25th.

If you have any questions concerning your child’s current progress in a subject, please contact the teacher and schedule an appointment outside of this date.  This will allow us to remain on schedule throughout the day of CAPS conferences.
