8th grade students and their families will have the opportunity to learn all about high school soon.
Learning about high school
Eighth graders – members of the Class of 2021 – and their parents are invited to Waynesville High School to learn more about freshman courses and the scheduling process on Tuesday, Feb. 21, in the WHS Auditorium. A general presentation will be held from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. and then at 7:30 p.m., students and their parents may attend the curriculum fair. The curriculum fair will start at 6 p.m. (before the general presentation) and be open after the presentation as well.
“We feel it is very important that students make quality course selections as freshmen to obtain a strong foundation for the rest of their high school careers,” says Theresa McNutt, WHS counselor.
The event helps prepare families to make decisions about the courses their student will take during the upcoming freshman enrollment. In late February and early March, the freshman counselor will visit Waynesville Middle School, present the WHS curriculum and ask families to return the course preference sheets the next day.
Planning for the future
“This is a pressure-free environment that allows families to ask questions, explore the many options available and to choose the path that best suits the student’s long-term goals,” McNutt says.
When: Tuesday, Feb. 21
Where: Waynesville High School auditorium
Time: 6 p.m.
