Hoots Summer Hours
We are excited to share a mental health resource that will support 4J students over the summer! Beginning July 10th through August 11th the HOOTS Crisis Clinics will run three days a week! We will be at South every Tuesday, Churchill every Wednesday, and Sheldon every Thursday. Each clinic will run from 10 AM – 2 PM.
The HOOTS program, an offshoot program from White Bird’s CAHOOTS, will continue our services during 4J Summer Intensives. The clinic contains a crisis worker and an EMT, our services are HIPAA compliant, and we can provide short-term counseling, crisis intervention, basic first aid, and community referrals. We are in schools to provide extra support to students who are experiencing anxiety, depression, suicidal ideation, difficulty meeting their basic needs, issues at school, at home, with friends or with family…and so much more! The clinic can connect students to services in the community, long-term counseling, and even get them signed up for OHP on site.
Anyone can access the clinic and students can sign up by doing the following:
- Students enrolled in 4J Summer Intensives can self-refer or get referred by a friend, teacher, counselor, parent, or school administrator here. As always, please consider referring students who are struggling to us!
- Students who are not enrolled in 4J Summer Intensives but are 4J students and need support over the summer can book appointments here. It is important to us to continue serving youth over the summer!
Adolescent & Family Services (AFS)
The Adolescent & Family Services (AFS) Program will continue supporting 4J youth throughout Summer Break. Our counselors have flexible availability and can meet with students on school campuses, at our clinic downtown, and via Zoom.
Please don’t hesitate to contact us directly or CLICK HERE to refer students to the AFS Program. (Students can self-refer.)
In addition to serving teenagers with substance use challenges, we have expanded our scope to provide broader mental health support. Our work has only been possible with the enthusiastic collaboration and support of 4J staff. We look forward to exploring what more we can accomplish as a team next year!

Helpful Tips for Seniors
Brought to you by the College & Career Center
We hope you have a restful and enjoyable summer. When you come back as a senior, there will be a lot to think about. Not to worry, we can help. Here are some helpful tips to make your senior year less stressful and more successful.
If you applying to a 4-year college/university what can you do during the summer to get started? Good question. We have the answer.
D. Did you know the Common App and the Coalition App open on August 1st? Most colleges make their application available then also. Get a jump on things and start your applications before you return to school.
If you are applying to a community college:
- All two-year colleges, commonly called community colleges or junior colleges have their own applications.
- These can be found on their individual websites.
- Each college’s application process can be different so make sure you know the details.
- The admissions office at a two-year college typically does not require a transcript, however, there are times when the college will need a transcript to know what classes you should take.
- We do not send transcripts through Naviance to two-year colleges. If you need one, find out to what office the transcript should be sent and then email your Counselor or our Registrar, Dorothy Catanese, or firstname.lastname@example.org
- Please tell us what office needs the transcript and how to send it to them, i.e. email or mail. Or, if you can submit the transcript, we can send it to you.
MONEY, MONEY, MONEY – COLLEGE CAN BE EXPENSIVE!

2. The 2023/2024 FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) opens on October 1st. Even if you can’t fill out the form now, you can create your FSA ID which is your username and password. You can do that HERE. Even if you don’t think you will be eligible for need based aid, you should still file the FAFSA. Some scholarships and colleges require FAFSA information.
***Do not fill out the 2022/2023 FAFSA. You are starting college in 2023 so you fill out the 2023/24. Planning ahead is important!***
And lastly, we provide a lot of opportunities for you to get help and the information you need. The best thing is, they are FREE. Colleges visit our campus during lunch; we have workshops to help you fill out all types of applications, information sessions, and a fair so you can connect with a wide variety of resources and a whole lot more. There are several ways you can find out what’s happening. Watch the TV monitors in the College and Career Center or the student lounge area, listen to the announcements, READ YOUR EMAILS, look at the calendar of events in the student lounge area check out the CHS calendar, visit the College & Career Center website and Naviance.
We look forward to seeing you in the Fall.
