Class of 2020 High School Night

March 31st

HHS at 6:30

EPHS at 6:30

Info from EPHS: if your student is zoned to go to East Paulding High School next school year they received both a flyer and brochure about our 8th grade parent night on 3/31/16 at 6:30. After this meeting your student will have the opportunity to make corrections or updates to their course request. The brochure we have provided is a summary of all the Career Tech Pathways that we have to offer your student. With each pathway we have given you a brief description of the pathway, a QR code, or an interactive picture. Parents can download the Aurasma app on their smartphone or tablet and join the EPHSCTAE2016 group to view a short video about the pathway. QR codes when scanned by a scanner app will connect them to a website with more information. These access directions can also be found on the back of each CTAE brochure. We hope that you will find these helpful in making decisions about what classes are right for your student. Hope you are able to join us!
