School Counselor Grade 11 - Class of 2018

May 2017

Dear Class of 2018 Students, Parents, and the CHS Community,

Serving as a Professional School Counselor at Cibola High School since the 2011-12 school year, it has been my honor and privilege to be a part of the CHS team and family. I have especially enjoyed these past two years as the school counselor for the class of 2018, this year’s junior class.

After 23 years of working in education, due to medical issues, I will be taking a sabbatical next school year 2017-18. I look forward to returning to CHS August 2018. Ms. Jeni Tuttle will be the senior counselor next year for the class of 2018.

It has been my pleasure to work with and support the success of our students. I have appreciated the collaboration with my Counseling Department colleagues, CHS teachers, staff, administration and parents/families on behalf of our students. I wish my students and each of you the very best.

Best wishes, 

Mrs. Erin Reilly Stroka, M.A


August 2016

During the 2016-17 school year, I have the pleasure of continuing to serve as the school counselor for the 11th grade - Class of 2018.

The 2017-2018 Senior Registration PowerPoint I presented to the junior class February 2-3, 2017 is available for view on our CHS Counseling website or by clicking this link. This includes:

  • How to prepare for senior year and life after high school
  • How to register for the ACT & SAT college entrance exams
  • NCAA Eligibility - student athletes planning to play collegiate sports
  • Considering the U.S. Military
  • Graduation credit requirements
  • How to understand your Student Graduation Requirement Profile (individual reports provided to each student)
  • Completing your Course Request Card for 12th grade
  • The CHS 2017-18 Course Catalog & course options
  • Credit recovery options
  • The policy/procedure for requesting a schedule correction within the first 10 days (only) of each semester
  • Important dates to remember Spring 2017
  • How to apply for a CEC course & CEC Open House information

This year I will be sharing helpful information and resources (dates for college rep. visits, scholarships, college visit days, opportunities, etc.) using the app 'Remind 101.'  

I encourage students and parents of the class of 2018 to please sign-up for Remind 101 to receive these updates. To sign-up, please click here.

I have 490 students on my junior class caseload. My hope is that by using Remind 101, I'll be able to more quickly share information with you.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact me by email or telephone (email is the best way to reach me). I also welcome appointments to meet with you in-person.

During the school year, my office hours are 8:00am-3:00pm Monday through Friday.

How can students meet with me? So as not to interrupt instruction, I am happy to meet with students during their student lunch, after school until 3:00pm, or with a teacher or counselor pass.

The Counseling Department is located downstairs, next to the Health/ Nurse’s Office. 

Please feel free to contact me via email at and/or via telephone at 897-0110 ext. 40159. Here's to a GREAT junior year!
