NEXT WEEK :: High School Course Registration

Hello amazing 8th graders & families!


Next Monday and Tuesday (12/21 & 12/22), we will be coming into 1st period classes to discuss the high school class registration process with students. Students will be using their HCPSS Connect login to review current recommendations and make selections for their electives and alternates. Families will have the chance to review these classes and make changes if needed.


We will have "Open Lab" opportunities for any student/family that may need additional help - please see hours below. If your child is absent on Monday/Tuesday, we encourage you to attend one of the Open Lab times. If neither of those times work for you, please email Ms. Fischer to set up a time after winter break.



*Monday, 12/21 from 10:45AM-1:00PM - code: lems-highschool

*Tuesday, 12/22 from 3:00PM-6:00PM - code: lems-highschool (PLEASE NOTE: we will do a re-teaching of the lesson from 3:00-3:30)


We encourage families to talk with their student(s) this weekend to talk about possible course options for high school. Here are some helpful links to get the conversation started:

-High School Course Catalog:


We know this is a lot of information during an already very busy time of year! We are here to answer any questions you may have -- please email Ms. Fischer at


See you all on Monday/Tuesday next week!
