8th Grade Parent Meeting TONIGHT

Dear Eighth Grade Parents,
We are looking forward to seeing you this evening at White Station Middle School at 6:00.  Administration from White Station High School will be present to discuss transitions to high school.  We will address courses for ninth graders, freshman academy, and activities available.  Staff will be available to answer your questions.
WednesdayThursday, and Friday, the ninth grade counselor and I will speak to all students and address the same information during their social studies class.  Students will have the opportunity to ask their own questions.  Students will select their courses for the ninth grade.  Most of the ninth grade courses are requirements and students have very few choices for the ninth grade year.  We will discuss this more this evening. 
All courses are now registered through Power School.  At this time the system is not prepared for us to enter the courses on the computer as we had originally planned.  As soon as the system is available, students will enter their courses on the computer. You will receive notification of the selections. This is new for us and the first time our rising ninth graders have used this system.  As I receive more directions, I will provide those directions to you. We will be assisting your students through this process when the system is available.
Several parents have inquired about bring their children to the meeting this evening. It is not required for students to attend the meeting since we will be addressing them separately with the same information. Historically, most parents attend the meeting without their students as students will have their own opportunity to hear the information and ask their own questions. Students are welcome. Deciding whether to bring your child or not is your choice.
I am looking forward to seeing all of you this evening.
Warm regards,
J. Blanton
