NEW THIS YEAR!!  Check out our Facebook page for questions that will be posted each day for students and their families to think about together.



8th Graders Prepare for High School

It's going to get pretty busy for our 8th graders in the next few weeks & months.  They attended a Freshman Rally at the High School on February 27 and that same evening they and their parents were invited to a Future Freshman Night to learn more about what to expect at the high school.  Several weeks from now they will register for classes.  There will be 3 registration nights with a special focus each night for specific populations.  Promotion pictures and a panorama picture of the 8th grade class will also be coming up.  (And don't forget that the yearbook makes a great remembrance of their 8th grade year.)  Please note revision made to page 3 of Promotion Packet (updated 4/19).
