The Counseling Department understands this is a difficult time for all involved having to adapt to a new way of receiving education and/or services to support each other. As a department, we wanted to reach out to let you know we are available to all students. If for any reason you would like to discuss the adjustments to the current circumstances in which we face, please feel free to contact your counselor using their email. Please make sure you leave your phone number so that your counselor can call you back. You may also visit "Help for Students in Crisis". We are all in this together, so please take care and stay healthy.

Oakdale California Army National Guard Armory
The Oakdale California Army National Guard Armory wants to extend information to all students and parents on opportunities available with the California Army National Guard. For as little as one weekend a month and two weeks a year, students can earn educational benefits, insurance benefits, and drill pay. There is currently 15 MOSs (Job Skills) that students may qualify for, giving them a $20,000 bonus. A Junior can enlist into the Guard in the Recruit Sustainment Program and begin collecting time and grade. Juniors can attend Basic Training during their summer break and complete their Job Skill upon graduation as a Senior. In the Guard, students will serve their Community, State, and Country.
Oakdale California National Guard Armory is looking forward to using Zoom and Goggle meet to talk to students and parents. Feel free to reach out to SSG Bruce J Riley at 916-969-2482 or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
There will be an opportunity to those students wanting to take an ASVAB to have the chance to take a Practice ASVAB first. For those interested in joining any branch, this would be very beneficial. It will allow them to know some of their weaknesses and more time to practice. Getting a higher score gives any student who is truly looking to serve their country more opportunities and better jobs.
