8th Grade Students:
2018-2019 Countdown to High School Events
We want our 8th grade students to realize the importance of their 8th grade year; seeing it as preparation for a successful transition into High School and not just “their last year in Middle School.” We partner with Loveland High School to help make a smooth transition for our 8th graders to high school. We have events planned throughout this year to provide helpful information for students and their parents. Information will be shared through our website, messages and parent portal. In addition, transitional programming will occur for our 8th graders during the school day throughout the year to include high school student visits, presentations from high school staff and career exploration through Naviance. We look forward to working with you this year and supporting the success of our Eighth Graders!

You may fill out a "Request to see Counselor" form any time between classes, before or after school. Your counselor will call you as soon as they can. Please remember many things come up for us each day and if we’re not available we will see you as quickly as we can. Of course, you may e-mail me, or visit with me during lunch if you have a quick question (I am down in the cafeteria with you every day).
Please call to make an appointment to ensure a counselor will be available to speak with you.
Students will have a chance to change Elective classes the first full week of school and the first full week of second semester. If the change is possible, the following process and form will need to be completed. Forms will also be available in the Counseling Office.
