7th Grade Meetings

Parents of 7th grade students should be receiving text messages inviting them to a brief meeting with their student and the counselor in the next two weeks. Please reply with a YES to confirm your attendance at the appointment or NO if you are not able to join us. We will still meet with your student.

On the day of the appointment, please arrive on time as the meetings are scheduled back to back. The meetings will be held in the portables near the parking lot. Please park in the parking lot and check in there rather than in the office. 

If you have any questions, please contact your child's counselor.

Los padres de los estudiantes de séptimo grado deben recibir mensajes de texto invitándolos a una breve reunión con su estudiante y la consejera en las próximas dos semanas.  Por favor responda con un SÍ para confirmar su asistencia a la cita o NO si no puede unirse a nosotros. Aún nos reuniremos con su estudiante.

El día de la cita, por favor llegue a tiempo ya que las reuniones están programadas una tras otra. Las reuniones se llevarán a cabo en los salones portátiles cerca del estacionamiento. Por favor estacione en el estacionamiento y regístrese allí en lugar de en la oficina.

Si tiene alguna pregunta, comuníquese con la consejera de su hijo/a.

Course Selection Tips

Attention 8th Graders!

From the HMBHS Counselors:
The HMBHS Counselors held a Course Selection PLP for incoming Cunha 9th grade students on Friday, January 22, 2021. Please see the recording of the meeting above. Course requests will be made via Google Form this year. The link to the Google Form was sent to the student's School Loop mail on Friday.

Parents/Guardians: You MUST fill out this form with your students because at the end of the forms you will need to approve your student's course selections. No physical forms will be turned in to us. Students are NOT required to obtain physical signatures from teachers to “approve” their course requests. Please do not email the teacher for approval, as we will be in communication with them directly.

Student Planning Guide: Course descriptions, pre-requisites, graduation requirements, everything is in here!
Course Selection Form: This has a list of all of the options for 9th graders and is the Google Form they need to submit.
Advanced Course Contract: Supplemental form in case they choose any AP or Advanced courses.

Response to Bullying

At Cunha, we value a positive school culture, allowing all students to express themselves openly and without fear of judgement. We take a strong stance against bullying and have made it our top priority to ensure the safety and well-being of all students. Counselors recently went into all 6th grade Social Studies classrooms to present Anti-Bullying presentations for students. Topics for 6th grade included the definition of bullying, the difference between tattling and telling someone when there's a problem, and "Stop, Walk, and Talk" (our method to alleviate bullying). 

Stop: Tell the person to "stop" in a clear loud voice. Make sure they know that you are not joking and exactly what behavior you want them to stop.

Walk: Walk away from the person. Create distance and avoid them wherever possible. If it is in class, ask the teacher to move seats.

Talk: Tell someone, any trusted adult. Let them know what is happening and that you need help.

We encourage students to visit the counseling office if they are feeling uncomfortable, unsafe, or unhappy at school and urge parents to do the same. If you are worried about your child please let us know.
