Dear seventh grade parents,
We are halfway through the school year, and I am aware
researching and planning for high schools is a major focus for
parents at this time. I wanted to reach out to you all, and let you know
about a couple of things we have lined up, between now and the summer, designed specifically to
help and support our seventh grade families.
ISEE Test Prep
We will hold an after school enrichment class, on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 4:00 to 5:00 p.m., February 24 through April 2. The
goals of this six week program are to:
· Help students
develop their strategies for taking the test
· Improve essay
writing and organizational skills
· Work on grammar and
· Develop and hone
strategies for math sections
To sign up the test prep class, please use the registration package below. For more
information, contact Glyn Jenkins at firstname.lastname@example.org.
High School Fair
Westside School will be hosting the West Seattle High School Fair, on Tuesday, May 12, in
the MPR. Last year's fair was a huge success, and our (current) eighth grade
families found it very helpful; therefore, I encourage you to attend (with your
children) to gain an early insight into how our local high schools may be
a good fit for your children. I will be sending out more information about the
high school fair in the coming weeks.
I am looking forward to helping and supporting you, and
your children, on the journey to high school.
