    Its a great day to be a Hawk!

    This weeks announcements:

    8TH GRADE PARENTS/GUARDIANS:

    During the 8th Grade Invasion, your students will receive a copy of the 4-Year Plannning Tool 20-21.pdf  and the 9th Grade 2020-21 -new.pdf . The planning tool lists what is required of students to graduate high school. The 9th grade course selection sheet lists all of the courses available to 9th graders. 

    8th grade students should have completed (or will complete) the Texas Career Check Interest Profiler with their middle school counselor. Looking at their top career interests, review the endorsements and course options in the Endorsement Guide to figure out which courses are available for that program of study. Use the 4-year planning tool to begin developing a personal graduation plan. This will be revisited each year.

    Students will have a total of 8 classes (more if they are involved in band or other sports not offered during the school day). Be sure to choose one course each under the core courses: English, math, science and social studies. Then choose the last four classes from LOTE (Languages other than English) and/or the elective choices. A description of courses can be found in the PfISD High School Course Guide

    Please go over this with them as they are gearing up for high school. A draft of the four-year plan and the course selection sheet should be completed prior to attending the individual student/parent conferences in February.
