Next School Year Update: Please complete ASAP!
A letter from the district was sent home last week with all 7th grade students. This letter details changes which will impact 8th grade scheduling. An electronic version of the letter is shared below. In addition, we need each family to complete the required registration link by Friday, May 20th! If you completed this form on Monday of last week, please resubmit your request. There was an error in the spreadsheet and we lost approximately 16 of the first responses. If you are unsure and wish to submit again, please go ahead and do so. We will sort through duplicate requests. Thank you for your patience in this process!
8th Grade ONLY Update!!!
High School Unit of Credit Decision Forms: Due Friday, May 20
On Monday, May 16, each 8th grade student received a High School Unit of Credit Decision Form. Each form is personalized to the student and lists the high school courses they are taking this school year. Parents are required to sign the High School Unit of Credit Decision form indicating whether the grade for the course(s) taken will be counted for middle school credit or as a unit of credit towards high school graduation.
Accepting a high school credit in middle school will result in the grade being used in the grade point average (GPA) calculation for high school, which determines class rank, valedictorian, honor graduate, etc. These courses are not used in the GPA calculations for HOPE scholarship. Students must pass both first and second semester with a 70 or higher in order for the grade to appear on a high school transcript.
Upcoming Important Dates:
- HS Semester Exams: May 20-25
- Early Dismissal/Last Day of School: May 25 @ 11:00 am
- Final Report Cards: May 27 (Available in Parent Portal)
- First Day of School (22-23): August 4
