Dear 8th Grade Parent(s)/Guardian(s),
This is a very exciting time of year for our 8th-grade students (and you!) as we begin high school course registration. Can you believe your 8th grader is a member of the high school graduating class of 2026?!
To help prepare for the high school transition, related topics have been explored in our HS 101 episodes aired during NEST period on Mondays and will continue throughout the month of December. After viewing the episode, a live Q&A session takes place on google meet with Mrs. Marton.
Be sure to ask your student about what they have learned so far or view it for yourself through the HS Information Canvas Page! (see resources below). Students can look forward to in-person HS information lessons with Mrs. Marton, the option to meet with Mrs. Marton individually, as well as lunchtime counselor corners.
Important dates for HS transition/course registration are below as well as resources and parent office hour opportunities. PLEASE REVIEW THIS TIMELINE CLOSELY.
Course requests can be entered 12/20/21-1/18/22 through synergy. Please note, it is not first-come, first-serve. Take your time through this process and explore all possible pathways. While you wait for the registration window to open, please take advantage of the many resources included below and shared through future emails.
This is an exciting time! I look forward to assisting our falcons through it!
