      IGPs – 8th Grade Only

      My how time flies! It's hard to believe that your 8th grader is beginning the preparation process for High School.  We are excited to be a part of the planning to help make it a smooth transition.  This begins with the IGP (Individual Graduation Plan).

      By now you should have received a letter noting the day and time. We need both parent/guardian and student to attend a short IGP session. During this session we will discuss:

      - Information regarding "What is an IGP?"

      - Connecting their high school experience to world of work

      - Important upcoming dates

      - High school registration process

      Please make every effort to attend this extremely important discussion regarding your students high school experience and how it relates to the world of work.

      If you have a question regarding your meeting date and time or if you need to reschedule your appointed time, please feel free to call our Guidance Office at 476-4805.
