Preparations for High School

Parents of 8th Graders:

It’s hard to believe, but it is time to start planning and preparing for your child’s transition from middle school to high school and beyond.  Our guidance department has been working diligently to ensure that the district has a specific scope and sequence related to preparing students to be college and career ready by the time they graduate.  Part of this work is specifically focused on the 8th grade student.

By last Friday, you should have received information regarding having a personal conference with Ms. Kimble, the OMS guidance counselor.  If you haven’t already seen this information, please ask your child about it.  This is one of the intentional steps our guidance department is taking to ensure that parents, the child, and the school are on the same page regarding goals, aspirations, and setting a plan in place for how to progress through high school.

Enjoy the warmer weather this week!
