Freshmen: We’re gearing up for next school year, and that means schedule request time! Please make sure you complete the form you were given, and have it signed by your parent/guardian before you turn it in. Remember, if you do not return it on time we may choose your classes for you! If you have any questions please come see me! Also, we’re halfway through the 3rd 9 weeks. If you received an X on your report card, and have not begun Make Up Seat Time, you need to see me right away so you can get started. You will not receive credits for your classes until you have made up the days you have missed.
Schedule request forms will be distributed in the first week of February. It is important that you start thinking about what classes you want to take, as well as what classes you need to take next school year. Think about whether or not you want to make the jump to take Honors or even AP classes. Think about what electives may interest you, and whether or not you want to take them next year. And, by all means, if you have any questions as to what classes you NEED to take, please see me.
Remember March 1st, all juniors will take the ACT, here, at King. Make sure you are prepared and present.
Schedule request forms will be handed out on Friday, February 18th.Remember you will be seniors next year, so you get first preference!
