TO MEET THE NEEDS OF OUR BUSY FAMILIES, OUR ANNUAL PARENT REGISTRATION INFORMATION NIGHT HAS BEEN REPLACED WITH AN ONLINE PRESENTATION.

Parents and guardians of current 5th graders (or parents of students who are new to the district) are encouraged to view our new Parent Registration Presentation to learn more about the middle school program, registration process, and available courses. Transitioning to Central, A Typical Day, Course Offerings, Opportunities to be Involved, Support for Students and Families, Registration, and Next Steps are covered in the Parent Registration Presentation. If you have questions after watching the presentation, we are offering a Question and Answer session from 6-7 p.m. on January 6, 2022.  All of our department leaders and the administrative team will be available to answer questions in a Google Meet.  In order to participate in the Google Meet, you will need a Gmail account, or you can use your child’s Gmail account.  Click Here to see the links for the different department leaders.
