Guidance office summer hours, enrichment programs announced

Summer isn’t just about having fun at the beach. It also means planning and preparing for the 2023-2024 academic year.

As the current school year ends, some students will use the down time to review their upcoming schedules and make sure they are registered for the classes they need.

Throughout the summer, the guidance office will be open weekdays from 7:30 a.m. until 4 p.m.

“The counselors will have limited hours during the summer and will be checking emails when they are in the office,” Guidance Clerk/Registrar Leslie Kellner said.

Kellner added that the guidance office will be closed on Memorial Day and the entire week of July 4.

The school and Brevard Public Schools will also offer a variety of programs for students wishing to use the extra time to focus on important activities, such as preparing college applications.

For example, West Shore will host a College Planning Boot Camp from June 5-8 in the school media center where students will learn about resume drafting, completing the common application, writing essays, and applying for Bright Futures and other scholarships.

A flier on the school’s main website page advises students seeking additional information to contact College and Career Specialist Angela Feldbush.

“The College Planning Boot Camp looks very interesting,” junior Olivia Luchetti said.  “It seems like there will be valuable information provided.”

For students interested in other summer activities, Brevard Public Schools will offer Summer Enrichment Programs in various subjects during each week of June. 

Summer Enrichment Program topics include robotics, creative writing, band camp, coding, theatre, CPR and many more. 

“The Summer Enrichment Program subjects look like a lot of fun,” freshman Violet Castillo said. “There are many programs offered that I am interested in.”
