8th Grade Crossover and Credits

Crossover seems very far away, but there are academic guidelines to being allowed to participate in the ceremony. 8th grade students who pass 3 or 4 core classes (Math, English, Science, Social Studies) for both Trimester 2 and Trimester 3 will be allowed to participate in the ceremony. Students who DO NOT pass at least 3 of their core classes will be unable to participate.

East Coast Trip - IMPORTANT UPDATE

All students and chaperones will be required to be fully vaccinated (2 shots - 30 days apart) to go on the East Coast Trip. Students and chaperones will be required to show their vaccination card before getting on the bus Saturday morning June 4th, along with their picture id. This is because students and chaperones will have to show their vaccination card upon entering many of the buildings/activities on the trip.
