The Mountain Heights Counseling Department, Administration, and Staff want to know more about YOU...our students!

Dream, Believe, Achieve

What is your dream?  What do you want to do and accomplish in your life?  Who or what inspires you?  How important is it to believe in yourself?  How do you plan on achieving your dream?  What are you doing now to make your dream a reality? Please share your thoughts, plans, and feelings with us. Here are some options you could do:

  • Creative a 1-2 minute video 

  • Create a PowerPoint  

  • Create a Flyer

  • Create an Animated Video - you don’t have to show your face in this video, but you can talk in the background while your video plays.


Please watch a video from our Student Body Officers telling about their future dreams and how they are working to achieve them. Kate Larson, Sage Ridgeway, and Alina Baron

Here are some videos with suggestions for making PowerPoints, Flyers, and Animated Videos.
