Future Freshman Information


Hello Ongoing 8th Grade students and families!

Click on the image below to open the PowerPoint presentation given to all 8th Graders by Mrs. Nelson. This PowerPoint was originally presented live to all 8th grades on Monday January 11th during Pride Time. Her spoken descriptions have been converted in viewable comments on each slide (found by hovering over the box in the top left corner).

As referenced by Mrs. Nelson in her presentation, taking an additional math course over summer is not recommended as the course material is slightly different than the class that is taught during the year.
