Naviance Parent Program/Workshop


As many of you are aware, Waldwick High School is a paperless school and we are using the email feature in Naviance to communicate with parents on a regular basis. We have embraced technology over the last few years in order to operate in a more efficient manner. We will continue to utilize the technology that is available in order to meet the goals we set forth for our student body.   

One of the tools we have utilized to assist us in this endeavor is Naviance Family Connection. The purpose of this letter is to invite high school parents to our Naviance Parent Program/Workshop (evening or morning session), which will be held on OCTOBER 11, 2012. The evening session will be held at 6:30pm in the Media Center. A morning session is also scheduled, for those parents that may find it more convenient to come to the school during the school day. The morning session will be held during period 1, starting at 8:15am in the Media Center.

High School counselors will be on hand to provide a short presentation on Naviance. Time will be allotted to help individual parents with any questions concerning the use and application of this valuable college and career planning resource. We will also have individual laptops available for parent use at this workshop. In addition, the high school Guidance office has created a Naviance Handbook to assist parents and students to navigate the many valuable features the program has to offer. The booklet has been posted to the Guidance website. The counselors are also distributing this booklet to all 9th grade students during the freshman conferences which are currently under way.

If you plan to attend one of these sessions, you must RSVP to Laurie Cassidy by Monday, Oct. 8th as follows: Tel: 201/652-9000 ext. 5007 or email at cassidyl@waldwick.k12.nj.us. Please provide your name (and number of attendees), your child's name and grade level, and which session you will attend (morning or evening).

We look forward to seeing you at the Naviance Parents Night and/or Morning Session events on October 11th!
