Submitted by april.rockwood on Fri, 02/03/2023 - 09:56

It's hard to believe we are already nearing the end of the school year and looking ahead to next year. Students will begin learning about registration in their history classes in the next 2 weeks. They will then bring home registration papers to select the classes they will take next year. Watch for those to come home. Parents are welcome to attend the classroom presentations on Feb. 7th for 8th graders and Feb 21st for 9th graders if you want to learn more about the classes offered. Presentations will take place in US history and World history classes. If you have questions, feel free to contact the counseling department.
