2018-2019 Course Selection - Action Needed
Course selection and online registration for the 2018-2019 school year has begun!

On Wednesday your 9th-11th grade student should have brought home a personalized letter with important information and instructions for you to create a parent account in PowerSchool. This account will allow you and your student to select courses and register online. The deadline for registering for courses is Friday, April 13.

We have many plans in place to assist our students and their parents as they choose courses and register online:

  • First, our counselors visited our students’ classes earlier this week to answer course questions and introduce the online registration process.
  • Second, we have created video tutorials with detailed instructions on how to create a parent account in PowerSchool and register online.
  • We have also created a video that describes the class offerings by subject area. This video and the HS Curriculum Guide should help assist students and parents as they make their course selections.
  • Finally, although we will not be able to accommodate personal parent meetings during this registration period, your student’s counselor will be available to you via email or phone and is always available to your student.

All of the above resources can be found in the HS P2P and Class of 2019, 2020 and 2021 Schoology groups under Resources and Registration.

Thank you for your support and partnership as we continue to grow and improve our school and our processes.

Student Information Forms
Your student brought home a copy of his or her Current Student Information Form that we currently have on file. Please review it, make any corrections, sign at the bottom and return it to school by Wednesday, March 28! Be sure to sign and return even if none of the information has changed.
