As we get closer to the end of the 2013-2014 school year, it is time to begin to think about the transition from middle school to high school. This letter is meant to give you a clear understanding of the scheduling process.
Week of March 24th: Mr. Pellicano will be in one of the 8th grade classrooms to have a general discussion in regards to this transition.
After Third 9 Weeks: The 8th grade teachers will make recommendations for placement in academic or honors courses.
* You will receive notification of the teacher recommendations at that time.
* We realize that students could perform far better or worse during the final grading period and this could affect the recommendation.
Week of April 7th : Mr. Como, high school guidance counselor, will spend a day in one of the 8th grade classes to continue the transition discussion. Topics will include credits required for graduation and elective courses and the overall scheduling process.
May 29th : “Bump Up Night” will be held for all 8th grade students and their families. It will be held from 6:00-7:30 this evening. Students will be given a tentative schedule for 9th grade and have a chance to walk through the high school building. Future meetings can be set up with the high school counselors should there be any additional questions.
