PARENTS/GUARDIANS OF 8TH GRADERS
Your child will be having a conference with me to go over their proposed Freshman schedule at Hackensack High School. Every student will be given a schedule regardless of which high school they plan to attend. They will also automatically be enrolled at HHS until the end of the school year, when we confirm where each student plans to go. Please look over the proposed schedule, sign the bottom of the form, and have your child return it to the Guidance office as soon as possible. If you have any questions you can contact the Guidance office or HHS' Director of Guidance, Mrs. Talin Hovsepian, at email@example.com.Honor Roll for Marking Period Two HERECongratulations to our hard-working students!Holiday Card Drive for Meals on WheelsMidland students were asked to make a holiday card to be included with meal deliveries for clients of North Jersey Meals on Wheels.
