Counseling TidBits

October is a big month for testing so we would like to share some tips from College Admission Strategies to reduce test anxiety:

  • Normalize test anxiety - Let student know that we all get anxious about different things.
  • Draw skills from other domains of competence - Help students identify areas where they've been successful. Ask if they experience stress there and how they managed it. Adapt those skills to test taking situations.
  • Understand the bodies response to anxiety - Students often find they can better manage their stress if they understand what is causing it from a neuroscience perspective.

For more information and tips read the full article here.


Parents and students are invited to attend Cougar Coffee House on Wednesday, October 17th at 6 pm in the STM café. Admission is $10.00. Coffee and desserts will be served. Members of the Speech and Debate Team begin performing at 6 p.m. We would love our community to see what our team has been working on!
