Course Selection for the 2019-2020 School Year:

Over the next two cycles academic teachers will be making course recommendations for their students. School Counselors will begin meeting with students at the end of January through the first couple of weeks of March to finalize student schedules and plan for the next school year. Course verification will be shared with parents/guardians once this process is complete.

Reminder to Parents/Guardians: If you are dismissing a student during the school day, please send your child in with a note and have them bring that to the Main Office on the morning of the day they need to be dismissed. This will reduce interruption to classes and will result in timely dismissals for students.

If you are in need of temporary food assistance please see information below about our partnership with Daniel's Table.

Career and Technical Updates

Grade 9 Students will be selecting Career and Tech Programs next week!

Individual Career and Tech Program Selection Meetings will occur the week of January 22-25th: Students will meet individually with their School Counselor and Director of Guidance/Admission to select their Career and Technical Program. Paperwork will go home about placement for parents/guardians to confirm. The order of program selection is determined by the grades students earn in their 8 exploratory cycles and overall performance in school.

We ask that parents/guardians sign the paperwork confirming their student's placement and that students return the next day to their English teacher.

Students will start in their Career and Technical Program on Monday, January 28th! Students will start their program during an assembly in the auditorium (7:35AM for AM exploratory and 11:00AM for PM exploratory).
