6th Grade News
Junior High Info
We are well into October, and the calendar is beginning to fill with Junior High dates. On Friday, your student should have come home with a blue flyer announcing Junior High Magnet Information Meetings for Westwood (Nov.11) and West (Nov.18). I strongly encourage you to attend both meetings, even if you are certain about which Junior High you want your child to attend. Both have new and interesting programs. Arm yourself with all the facts before making a final decision! Registering early for the meetings (see back of blue flyer) will speed up the check-in process the day of the meetings.
