Dear Parents of CJHS 8th Graders,
January is an exciting month for our 8th Grade Students. The MCHS registration process will begin in earnest after the holiday break. This will be spelled out in the attached MCHS Letter.
There are a couple of sporting conflicts with Future Freshmen Night (January 17th) that we have made some adjustments to, in order to speed up 8th grade athlete departure times for the convenience of those students and parents. The home volleyball match that night will be switched so that the 8th grade plays before the 7th grade. The wrestling match at Coal City is only a dual, and parents also have the option of driving their child home that night from the meet.
To apply to certain classes, MCHS requires skills testing. Those classes are listed in the 4th paragraph of the attached MCHS letter. Skills testing is offered at 11:00 a.m. at CJHS after early school dismissal on January 20th (only for students applying for those select classes listed). If your child cannot make that date, then January 28th at MCHS is available (boys basketball will have regionals on that date so they will want to make the 20th).
If you are certain your child will not be attending MCHS next year, please don’t hesitate to let me know. If that is the case, your child will not have to attend these MCHS registration activities. Again, don’t forget to read the attached MCHS letter. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to contact me at (815) 521-3074 email@example.com.
