6th and 7th Grade Scheduling for 2014-2015
Ms. Herd visited the 6th and 7th grade classes during the week of April 7th to go over Scheduling for next school year.  Ms. Herd provided students with a letter, Course Descriptions, and a Course Selection form to take home and go over with parents.  The Course Selection form is due by April 17th.  There are boxes on the main counter where students should turn in their completed form.  Late forms will not be accepted.  It is very important that students turn in the Course Selection form so Ms. Herd can schedule them in courses they desire for the 2014-15 school year.  If you have any questions about the materials sent home, please email or call Ms. Herd.  Additionally, the Course Descriptions and Selection form are available here.  (attach link to that page please)  Extra copies are also available in the Counseling Center.  .
