Today was the first step for the 8th graders to become freshman. They went over to the high school to meet in groups with upper classmen, visit booths for information about many of the programs offered, and then listen to Mrs. Haller, the freshman counselor.
The next step is for everyone to have their parents call North Junior High School, 435-0975, and make an appointment with our counselor, Mrs. Schriber. This needs to be done as soon as possible. Take your green folder home and talk to your parents about all of the classes offered and what you might like to sign up for. Then you will be prepared when you get to your meeting with Mrs. Schriber.
The 8th grade ELA team is selling spirit wear sweatshirts to raise funds to purchase materials for our classrooms. These sweatshirts are really nice. They come in both girls and boys, crewneck and hoodie. They are $25.00. There are order forms here at school. The deadline to purchase is next Friday, December 7, 2012.
Things have been really busy this week with Acuity, the blog, the North visit, and all of the other work we have accomplished. Congratulations on a job well done. As always, I am very proud of you!
There is no activity over the weekend, so get some rest and enjoy yourselves.
P.S. Kleenex, pencils, and extra free reading books!
