If you haven't done so already, please be sure to check out the scholarships that are located on the right side of this post. I just put a CentraCare scholarship on there this morning.
We started using a new school software, Genesis, starting with the 2009-2010 school year. Last week I went with our computer support specialist (who oversees the Genesis program) to a registration conference. Every year in January I have the 8-11th grade students input their requests for the next school year. This year will be no different, however the students will be able to input these requests at home with the help of their parents. The program that students will use for this is called StudentVue, which is similar to ParentVue that parents can use to check on their student's grades. This will be a useful way for parents to assist their child in picking their courses. Again this is just a way to REQUEST what the student wants but will NOT be their schedule. We will have an informational session at 6:30 p.m. in the HS cafeteria for parents and students to learn more information on this process. I hope you will mark your calendars now and plan to attend. I will send a message via the School Reach telephone system the week before the session as a reminder.
