Getting ready for high school

Posted on: January 28, 2016

The time is quickly approaching for Little Miami eighth graders to be thinking about high school.

Incoming freshmen orientation will be held Thursday, Feb. 18 during the school day. On that date, the high school counselors and administrators will be meeting with eighth graders. Students will receive a freshmen scheduling packet, and counselors will be discussing graduation requirements and course offerings for the freshman year. Students will receive their official registration materials, take a tour of the high school and ask scheduling questions.

That evening, parents are invited to Freshmen 101, beginning at 6:30 p.m. in the high school auditorium. Principals will be going over high school expectations and counselors will be going over new Ohio graduation requirements and course registration. Teachers will be present to explain the difference between honors and non-honors classes, as well as providing descriptions of electives available. Counselors will also talk about the timeline for course registration (when forms are due, etc.).

Eighth graders will complete online scheduling on Mar. 11 during the school day at the jr. high.
