Class Registration

Dear Parents and Guardians of Upcoming 7th & 8th Graders,

The Harrison Junior School Counseling Office would like to introduce you to the scheduling process for the 2019-2020 year! We are looking forward to making the transition to the next grade level as smooth as possible. We have several dates that are important for you and your student listed below.

January 14-18, 2019 – Registration Guides Distributed

Registration guides will be provided to rising 7th & 8th graders during the week of January 14-18, 2019.  Each guide will offer course descriptions for the elective classes available to your student for the upcoming year. I will visit each middle school classroom to review and discuss the registration guide with students at that time. A copy will be sent home and each student has been instructed to discuss the options with those who care for them at home in order to make informed decisions about their educational futures.  Please take the time to review the registration guide and discuss elective class options with your child. Core classes placements (English, math, science, and social studies) will be determined by four factors: prior grade teacher recommendations, MAP scores, work ethic and prior grades in specific subjects.

January 18, 2019 – Registration Forms Distributed

All upcoming 7th & 8th graders will receive their registration forms on the same day.  Registration sheets will be handed out and sent home on January 18, 2019 in your child’s classrooms.  Please fill out the registration form and return it to your child’s teacher by January 25, 2019.  A copy of the registration form will also be sent out via email by Mr. Tracy on this day.

January 28-February 1, 2019 – Individual Student Meetings

During the week of January 28-February 1, 2019, I will meet individually with every student to review their choices and finalize the registration process online. 

All of us at Harrison Junior School strive to develop a course schedule that meets the needs of each individual student.  We welcome your input and desire to collaborate with all stakeholders to enhance each our student’s education.  If you have any questions, please call at 513-367-4831 or email at jennifer.vineyard@southwestschools.org. We look forward working with your family and your student during this process.

Best Regards,

Jennifer Vineyard
