During the next two weeks, parents and students will be selecting and registering for 8 elective courses. The first four electives should be the primary electives and the last four should be alternates.
Core Classes (Language Arts, Math, Science and Social Studies) are recommended by each student's academic teachers. By using Cobb County placement requirements, teachers have submitted class recommendations to KMHS on February 26th. These courses will be placed in the system for viewing by parents and students through StudentVue by the end of March.
If a parent doesn't agree with a recommendation, a waiver may be completed through Kennesaw Mountain High School. The waiver will allow the parent to replace the class recommended with another class at a different level.
Please keep a watch out for elective packets given to all of our 8th graders. This packet includes an orange confirmation sheet to be returned to us, a green elective list, and two flyers. Please visit the Eighth Grade page on this blog for more details.
All 8th grade students will receive their PSAT 8/9 results today (Friday 1/29/16). Please let us know if you have not received them by Monday.
