Please refer to the calendar below to help understand the timeline. The Haggard counselors will be here next week to talk to the students about registering for middle school. Then, the following week, we will go to Haggard to listen to the opportunities that are available for music selections. Then, the following week, the Haggard counselors will be back at Wells to help students register for 6th grade.
There have been a few questions about math courses - Honors Math in particular. Unfortunately, the criteria has not yet been set; therefore all students will register for regular 6th grade math. Once the Honors Math criteria has been set, the counselors will then adjust the schedules as necessary.
