8TH GRADE PARENTS AND STUDENTS
Although we are only 4 months into the school year, the district has already begun preparations for next school year. During the next two months, the middle and high school guidance staff will spend time with the 8th grade class preparing them for life at the high school. The South Milwaukee High School Career Planning Guide will be reviewed along with important information about career goals. This information should be used to assist students in choosing a course of study that meets their career interests and post-high school aspirations. Students and parents should start having discussions about post-high school goals and develop a plan of study that aligns with these goals. In addition to your student receiving this information, the Career Planning Guide is available online. Go to www.sdsm.k12.wi.us, click on Schools, High School, Course Offerings and Selection Process, Career Planning Guide.
An Incoming Freshman Orientation Program is scheduled for Tuesday, February 24, 2015 at 6:00 p.m. in the High School PAC. Following the program, parents and students will have an opportunity to talk with high school administrators, counselors, department representatives and coaches/advisors. High school guidance counselors will meet with your students on Wednesday, February 25 in small groups to input their course selections online utilizing PowerSchool.
We are excited about having your students join the High School “family” and look forward to working with you. If you have any questions, please contact the middle school or high school guidance office.
