This year, all 8th grade students will have a group PCCR meeting (Plan for College & Career) with the school counselor. This will be held in the students’ social studies class period on Thursday, March 2nd. An invitation will be mailed out this week to give you the time of your 8th grader’s US History class. We will meet in the library and go over graduation requirements, and what your child should be doing to prepare for high school years. We will also review registration classes at that time. If you are unable to attend, there will be a power point sent out to each parent we have an email address for so you can review the material. Each student will also bring a folder home with information in it. Please contact Mrs. Roane if you have any questions or concerns. The students will have an individual PCCR meeting in 9th grade beginning in September 2017.

We participate in several community service activities each year and a fundraiser. In order to qualify, students must be a current 7th or 8th grader.
