8th Grade - Incoming Freshmen - Parent Information

Dear 8th Grade Students and Parent/Guardians,

Members of the high school administrative team and counseling staff are looking forward to working with you as you plan for your transition to Mt. Ararat High School.  The excitement about next year is growing, especially with the opening of the new school building. 

High school counselors are eager to get to know eighth grade students and look forward to interacting with them the next few months discussing high school programs and services, facilitating the course registration process, reviewing diploma requirements and addressing general questions.  As noted on the list of events, high school counselors will visit 8th grade classes on March 9th.  Students, please think about questions you may want to ask counselors when they visit you.  Prior to the visit, I encourage you to take a look at the high school website to review our Program of Studies, read about the courses offered at the high school, review diploma requirements, and consider extra-curricular activities that are of interest to you.  Our school handbook, which is also available on our website, is a good resource for students and families.

Your children have a lot to look forward to as they enter high school.  I know with change there can be anxiety, that is natural.  Please know that if you have questions or concerns, you are welcome to reach out to me or one of the counselors at either the high school or middle school.  Our goal is to support students and families as you plan for your transition to the high school.  Hope you can plan to attend the scheduled transition events.


Donna F. Brunette, Principal
