High school registration - Current 8th Graders

8th grade parents, there will be one last opportunity for you to register your child for high school classes next year. We will have a registration meeting on January 19th at 6:30 p.m., in the EPMS cafeteria. This meeting is for all high schools EXCEPT North Paulding High School. Again, if you are attending NPHS next year this meeting is NOT for you. If you are unable to attend, your child's schedule will be completed at school with a counselor.
