Welcome to your sophomore year at Oceanside!
Congratulations on making it through your freshman year! We recognize that adapting to the collegiate academy model takes time and effort. It is this effort that will help you navigate the coming year with confidence and set you up for the best pathway toward success.
One way to be successful is to take your classes seriously. Engage in the material. Ask questions. Go to the Writing Lab and peer tutoring in order to get as solid a foundation as you can before becoming an upperclassman and potentially entering college and career pathways.
Another way you can get ahead is to review the Career Pathways, Career Choices and Post High School pathways you developed in your REEF class as a freshman. We didn't have you do that exercise just to pass time. That research will now serve as a place to start making some solid decisions about how to spend your time and set yourself up for a fun and productive senior year.
We know it is hard to do this without some accountability, so we created a timeline checklist for you to follow. Remember, this is not only about making sure you are ready for college applications and careers, it is a way to determine for yourself the best possible pathway to the future you really want and making plans for how to bring that dream to life.
If you have any questions, please email your school counselor, Mrs. Peirano (Lpeirano@landsharks.org).
CHECK EMAIL OFTEN! MANY IMPORTANT REMINDERS WILL BE SENT TO YOUR OCA STUDENT EMAIL.
