--Transition Parent/Student Meetings

As part of the transition from middle school to high school, you will want to attend (with your child, if possible) one of the transition meetings.  The High School Transition Meeting will cover topics such as the importance of grades, earning credits in high school, graduation requirements, and how to best select courses that will prepare students to meet their future goals. We will be sharing online career tools that will help to guide students through this process. Ultimately, it is a chance for all of us to come together to prepare them for high school and beyond.

Meetings--you only need attend one.
