March News From the Middle School Counselor Mrs. Tuchi

Schedules For 8th Graders

All the 8th grade students received their class selection sheet for 9th grade. They must fill this out and return it to their English teacher Mrs. Cox by this Friday, the 27th. As parents, we ask to please guide them to the classes that are best fit for them. Your child will bring the selection sheet home for your signature. If you have any questions, please contact the teacher.

How The Class Selection Sheet Works

How The Class Selection Sheet Works

1. Each student must pick classes for 6 different periods. The 7th period has already been chosen. It is PE/Health.

2. The teacher from their current class must sign them off into the next year's class. The teacher based on the student performance/discipline decides if they are ready to go into an Honors class.

3. The only AP class available is AP European History, which is a very challenging course that has a college level textbook. The students must have an A during the school year in both English and History class. It requires both signatures from these teachers. In addition, MAP performance and Lexile level are also checked.

Cyber Safety

During my last Tuchi talk we discussed Cyber Safety and I showed the students some videos. I would like to share one of them with you.
