Dear 8th grade parent/guardian:
Next fall, your son/daughter will be beginning their high school experience. We would like to jointly work with you to ensure a successful transition from the middle school to the high school. Through a series of activities, we are providing information about 9 th grade course selection, graduation requirements, and A/B block scheduling to your student as well as yourself.
On Monday, February 6th, we will be meeting with your son/daughter during the school day to begin the registration process. We will be providing the students with course description booklets, course selection worksheets, and scheduling procedure information. Please ask your son/daughter for this resource packet after school on Monday.
On that same evening, February 6th at 6 pm, we request your attendance at a parent high school informational meeting in the HS Commons. At that time, the counselors will explain registration procedures, and the high school teachers will discuss courses offered, course prerequisites and course content. Your son/daughter is encouraged to attend with you. (We realize there may be MS sports scheduled, but please come if you can.)
Your student will then need to complete his/her pre-registration/course selection form and return it to the middle school by FRIDAY, February 10th as we will be pre-registering on-line that day. The high school scheduling committee will then create a master schedule of classes and in April, your son/daughter will receive their computer-generated class schedule. If you have specific questions about course selection, please feel free to call us at (715) 284-4324, ext. 2020.
We look forward to working with your son/daughter over the next four years. Freshman year is the best opportunity to get started on the right track and allow for a wonderful high school educational experience.

On January 4 and 5, Bill Quackenbush, a Ho-Chunk Tribal Historic Preservation Officer, presented information on the Ho-Chunk Courting Flute to the 6th grade General Music classes. He makes many flutes himself, and showed the class how the flutes are made, gave the background on the Courting flute, and played for the class.
This year’s winner of the Middle School Geography Bee is sixth grader Miles Timp. Congratulations!
