8th to 9th Grade Parent Transition Coffee
Magnet School Assembly Email to Parents (Nov. 22nd)
Dear 8th Grade Families,
Next Monday, November 25th, will mark the official launch of our 8th grade transition process with our annual High School Choice assembly. Attached you will find information about each of the magnet schools presenting.
We understand that any transition can be filled with excitement and anxiety, and we will do our best to keep you informed and make the process transparent. Beginning in January, we will be posting all transition event dates and times to our website. You can also expect to receive information via regular emails and through the PTC newsletter. On Monday January 6th, our school counselors will be visiting 8th grade classrooms to give an introductory overview of 9th grade and the high school. Our first parent event, the 8th grade Transition Parent Coffee Hour, will occur on Thursday, January 9th, from 9:15am - 10:15am in the Wagner Room at NCHS. (Snow Date: January 14th) This will be an opportunity for parents to receive an introduction to the transition process by the Saxe and NCHS administration and school counselors. For parents unable to attend the coffee hour, we will record the presentation and Q & A to post to our website. We look forward to helping both you and our 8th graders navigate the transition experience!
Warmest regards,Julie Ferreira8th Grade Assistant Principal
