Brag Sheet

BRAG SHEET

A brag sheet is used to write information about yourself that can be given to a staff member (teacher, counselor, etc), coach, club advisor, or employer when asking for a letter of recommendation.

  • Download this form to your desktop, save, then complete and save again.
  • Be as specific as possible.
  • Save this document so you can go back to it and update it as often as necessary and print copies when needed.
  • Make sure you give those you want recommendations from plenty of time to complete their letters, at least 2 weeks in advance.
  • Ask them to save their recommendations for you so you may ask them for an updated reference letter in the future.

You can also find a Brag Sheet Survey in your PowerSchool/Naviance, under the About Me tab, then Surveys. 

(Note: Beginning your Brag Sheet in 9th grade and updating it each time you have a new activity, sport or receive an award helps, because when you're a senior filling out the form for the first time, it's hard to remember all those things!)

Parents - will need to bring their government-issued picture ID when coming to Highland High School for any reason.  ID's are now scanned as part of our school's safety measures.

Parents - should receive notices of their student's academic progress approximately every 5 weeks.  If parents have any questions in between the progress reports, they can view their student's records via the Parent Portal in PowerSchool.  They can email their student's teachers by clicking on the teacher's name when in PowerSchool.  Better yet, take advantage of the free AV High School District app for your smartphone.  Any student who is struggling in a core class and/or earning a D or F grade at any time should take advantage of tutoring offered after school.  Be sure to check PowerSchool often!  Being informed helps you help your student.

Students - Counselors periodically visit your classrooms to fill you in about graduation and college requirements, and seniors will receive an Academic review before the end of October.  Any student who is struggling in a core class and/or earning a D or F grade at any time should take advantage of tutoring offered after school.  

Students - should see their counselor in the Guidance Office or College Center if they have questions or concerns, during their free time (before or after school, during break or lunch), however, 

IN AN EMERGENCY SITUATION, 
A COUNSELOR WILL SEE YOU ANYTIME
DURING THE SCHOOL DAY.

 

Dawg - I've got questions!  How do I: 

 

Get books?  The Student Union is where you check out books.  Hours are from 7:00 am - 3:45 pm.

 

Get my ID?  Students get their ID cards in August, or upon enrollment.  For a replacement ID, you must pay $5 at the Student Store, and take your receipt to Room 242.  You MUST wear your HHS ID!  Remind your parents that when they come to school, they must also bring their valid government issued ID.

 

Use a computer?  Go to the Computer Lab upstairs in Room 236.  It’s open at snack, lunch, and after school until 3:45.  OR you can go to the Student Union WITH your internet card.  The Student Union is open  before school, at snack, lunch, and after school until 3:45.  You can also check availability in the College Center (Room 140) and Career Center at the Guidance Office.

 

Get my Power School Code?  See anyone in the Guidance Office, College or Career Center, or Mrs. Fletcher in the Room 236 Computer Lab to get your code.  If your parent/guardian is having trouble accessing his/her PowerSchool/Naviance account, s/he can call the Counselor of the Day at 661-538-0304, ext. 382, Mrs. Sacca at ext. 376, or Mrs. Ortega at ext. 370. 

 

Get info about clubs and sports activities?  Check the bulletin online at our website, or on Power School.  The bulletin is also posted in the Guidance Office and the Career and College Centers.   You can also go to the Activities or Athletics Office to find a club or sport.  Being involved in a club and/or sport is a great way to meet new friends, and stay involved in your school and community!

 

Speak to a counselor?  You can see a counselor on your own time (before school, at break or lunch, and after school) in the Guidance Office , unless it's an emergency, in which case your counselor will see you anytime during the school day.

O CAPTAIN, MY CAPTAIN SCHOLARSHIP SLAM

ADD YOUR POEM

HOW DOES $1,000 FOR COLLEGE SOUND? THOUGHT SO. KEEP READING TO FIND OUT HOW TO WIN.

 

You've definitely had a mentor — someone or something that has affected your personal development. Mentors aren't just limited to people — there are abstract concepts and ideas that shape you every day. Now we're giving you the chance to say thank you and let this person or thing know how much they've impacted your life.

Who or what has had the greatest influence/impact on your life?

We can learn from anything, anywhere at any time. People, objects, and experiences — like coaches, parents, close friends, comics, movies, or favorite books — can seriously impact us. But so can concepts and ideas like love, fear, acceptance, depression, anger, and guilt. A mentor can also be something that you're passionate about, that's taught you more about yourself and/or the world around you. What does your mentor mean to you? How have these people or topics shaped you into the person you are today? Write a poem thanking the greatest influencer in your life for your chance to win.

Note: This is a sweepstakes scholarship. That means a winner will be chosen from a random drawing.

 

ELIGIBILITY

  1. The basic requirements are this: (1) you are 25 years of age (or younger), and (2) you are a current or former high school student who will attend or is attending college within the U.S. or its territories.
  2. Add an original poem to Power Poetry by Thursday, October 25, 2018. You'll need to register as a member of the Power Poetry community first.
