Welcome to the 8th Grade!
On this page I will post important information for 8th grade. This is going to be a busy year filled with tons of learning, field trips, service opportunities, the high school application process, field day, carnival and finally graduation!
Our first field trip is scheduled for Monday, September 30th. We will be walking to the zoo. Students may either bring money to purchase lunch or they may bring a packed lunch. If you would like to be a chaperone please let me know.
Eighth graders are expected to be able to write in cursive. Anything they turn in for a grade must be written in cursive. Please encourage your child to practice their cursive writing if they are not used to it.
HIGH SCHOOL INFORMATION
I will post high school information as I receive it. It is time to start thinking about which Catholic high school to apply to for next year if you are planning on attending one. 8th graders are allowed 2 excused days for shadowing. You can schedule shadow days directly through each high school's website. Please send a note letting us know when and where your child will be shadowing so they can be given that day's work to take with them.
