High School Registration

8th Grade Families: Hoover and Glendale High School Counselors will be visiting 8th grade Social Science classes this Monday, February 22, and Tuesday, February 23 to help students get registered for high school. Make sure you are present and on time so you don't miss it! In addition, all HHS and GHS counselors will be hosting Zoom office hours on Wednesday so you can drop in and ask questions. Details about the office hours have been posted in your 8th Grade Google Classroom. Finally, if you have applied to attend Clark Magnet High School in 9th grade, you will still attend the counselor session for your regular feeder high school, since Clark has not yet announced which students will be accepted for next year.
