Dear 8th Grade Parents,
Beginning with the second semester of this year, all 8th-grade students will be taking a semester of Washington State History. This change to our courses and sequence of classes is a result of a realignment to our social studies course offerings. Currently, all 9th graders take Washington State History for one semester and Digitools for one semester with each earning a .5 credit. Beginning with the second semester of this year and beyond, Washington State History will move to the junior high. In the short term, Mrs. Diaz has offered to assist in transitioning all current 8th graders so that as ninth graders their course options will be opened to pursue other classes. This transition will begin with the start of the second semester this year.
We are planning to make this move as seamless as possible for your student. Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact the HS Office at 360.249.4041.
