Happy FRIDAY Timberwolves!
8th Grade Registration for High School
Counselors from Hazen and Renton High Schools will be visiting 8th grade classes in March to support students with indicating preferred classes for their first year in high school. Renton High School will be meeting with students via zoom on March 4th, and then Hazen High School will be meeting with students on March 8th and March 11th. Good attendance is important on these dates so that students can participate.
The process is slightly different for each high school and will focus primarily on the selection of elective classes, as most of the classes for freshmen are required classes. Counselors will also share more information about high school expectations, credits, and graduation requirements. Look for a separate message with more details, depending on the high school your student is slated to attend. We will also be posting links on Risdon’s website with additional information.
Current 6th and 7th Graders - RMS Registration for Next Year
To all parents/families of current Risdon 6th and 7th graders, this coming week we will be sending to students’ Outlook email accounts the information about how students will tell us about the elective classes they are interested in for next school year (2021-22). The information we share will include elective description pages, as well as instructions for how students should fill out and submit their elective preference forms back to our registrar, Ms. Jones. Once the registration information is shared, please be in touch with our registrar, Ms. Jones if you have any questions.
Here is the registration info on our school website.
Here are the directions we sent to students that will be reviewed with teachers starting tomorrow for current 6th graders, and during this week for 7th graders:
You get to let us know what electives you prefer (by completing the form attached to this email message), and then we try to build in enough elective classes to be able to meet your requests.
Getting your very top choices is not guaranteed, but we do our best to give you the ones you tell us you want the most.
When making selections, make sure you use numbers, with 1 being your first choice, 2 for your second choice, and so on.
Descriptions of the classes are on page 2, with links to applications if necessary.
Check out our YouTube channel videos describing each class
If you are interested in Honors, see the included/attached Honors information sheet. Each grade level has different Honors options, so review this carefully!
Make sure after you fill out the form, you save it, then send it as an attachment to firstname.lastname@example.org .
If you change your mind after you turn it in, that’s ok, just send me an email with your requested changes.
