Welcome to PBS-HSA. Go Wolves.
Welcome to PBS-HSA, we look forward to getting to know every single one of you. We hope you are ready for a successful year! Your counselors are here to support you. It is imperative that you don't fall behind academically, and we are here to provide support.
Please make sure to always update your Naviance account and to check your email regularly. Naviance is full of useful information about a wide range of topics including potential colleges, careers, and anything that will prepare you for life during and after high school.
Ask your teachers about their tutoring days. When you stay after school teachers can help you with assignments. Sometimes you can also re-take an exam.
Extracurricular Activities: Clubs
This is the time to join different clubs inside and outside of school. You will learn what activities you like to do and participation in clubs can also help your college applications stand out from the other applicants. Join our clubs/activities like soccer, basketball, cheerleading, volleyball, cross country and more.
