MEMO: Incoming 9th and current 9th Grade Students & Parents
REGARDING: 2020-2021 Course Requests
Dear Good morning,
I wanted to reach out to all the families of 8th Graders and Freshman to see if anyone had any questions in regards to next year's classes. As you know, some of the details for this year have not yet been solidified. What we do know and can answer can be found at this site which will be updating regularly. However, we are still in preparation for next year and I wanted to let you know that I will still be answering questions you and your student may have.
Before the break, we were working with students for 20/21 course requests. The students use CareerCruising.com to make selections and parents can also login to see what they chose. Because of the untimeliness of the break, I was not able to sit with every student like we wanted. Below are two links to a form that can help families pick courses and learn about some of the programs.
I advise families to sit with their students to see what they chose through Career Cruising and if there are any updates to their choices then use the below form as a means of communication. I also suggest, while choosing, look at all of the course options and prerequisites in our Curriculum Guide. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate in contacting me.
I hope you and your family are well and safe during this difficult time and I look forward to working with your student in the near future. Feel free to email me with any questions.
