Family Life Education

The Family Life Education team will be here to work with our students from January 31-February 2 Parents who wish to opt-out their child from family life will need to complete the online opt-out request form listed below. By completing this opt-out form, you are requesting a paper copy of the opt-out form to complete. Students will only be opted out of family life education with a signed paper copy that is returned to their classroom teacher prior to the lesson.

*Here's more information about the Family Life Program and the opt-out form.

Important Message for Parents of 5th Graders!

After winter break, the school counselors will be registering your child for sixth grade. On Thursday, December 8th, the middle school counselors will visit your child's class to provide an orientation. At that time, students will be bringing home a hard copy of the Program of Studies. It is also available online at this link. This is your guide for all available courses.

In addition, beginning Monday, December 5th through Monday, January 2nd, parents have the option to enter their child's elective choices into PowerSchool through the parent portal. This is not mandatory since all students will be meeting with the school counselors who are able to enter elective choices. Registration is NOT a first-come-first-serve procedure. The timing of when courses are entered does not determine the chances of getting an elective. However, if you are interested, the directions for entering the courses are below.

Parent Portal Procedure

If you have questions or concerns, please contact Paige Abasolo, school counselor, at 723-3455 or
