Just 3 Reminders.....
Parent Course Selection Night is Tuesday, November 6.
PLEASE PLAN TO JOIN US AT 6:30 PM IN THE AUDITORIUM!
Did your student show you their course selection form? If not, ask them for it tonight! We are strongly encouraging parents to take an active role in helping your students select courses for the next school year.
On Monday, November 5th, teachers will hold an open course fair for all the electives and college prep core classes during each of the lunches. On Tuesday, November 6th, teachers will have a second course fair during lunch for all of the AP classes. During these 2 fairs, students should plan to talk to the teachers of any classes that they are not sure about. Things that they should ask: 1. What are the topics covered in this class? 2. How much homework will there be with this class? 3. Are there courses that I must take before I can take this course? 4. What else should I know before I sign up to take this course?
After these 2 events for the students, parents will have a course fair just for parents (and your student) on Tuesday, November 6th, at 6:30 PM. All of the department chairs for each area will be here to answer any of your questions. It is common for students to tell their parents that they really don't need to come to this meeting. But we think it is very important. Parents need to guide the students in course selection and help them pick courses that will best prepare them for their life after high school. While we do our very best to help each student pick the best courses, parents know their students better than we do! Please take an active role in helping them select their pathway. Students will all have a course selection form. We need parents to review that form and sign it so that we know that you have discussed the choices with them.
