Aside from digging your backpack out from under the bed and finding a pencil that is sharpened, there are a few important steps to preparing for the upcoming school year. Over the next two weeks, families should receive a registration packet in the mail. This packet is filled with important information, and some critical papers that need to be filled out for the school year. Below you will find date and time for your child's registration process. Incoming 7th graders should also plan to attend the WEB orientation--this program is a key factor to a successful transition to junior high!
9th grade registration: Thursday 8/21 11--12pm
8th grade registration: Thursday 8/21 1--2pm
7th grade registration: Thursday 8/21 2--3pm
7th grade WEB orientation
and Schedules Pick Up: Tuesday 8/26 8:30 – 12pm
Be sure to bring all your completed paperwork to your time slot! Students who are unable to register at their assigned time are asked to come August 26th, from 1:30 - 3:30pm.
Questions? The information packet will answer all your questions. If you still have questions after checking the packet, please contact Emerson Junior High for assistance.
Many of you noticed that the registration packet indicated that Emerson will be using Chromebook carts this school year, and that students will be using Google Apps for Education. This exciting development, made possible by the district technology committee, will allow Emerson to better prepare students for the annual common core testing every spring. This testing, done on computers, can be challenging if you don't have enough experience in using computers. Most sites only have one or two computer labs, so in order to ensure that all students have access to computers regularly, the district has purchase four mobile labs for each junior high school. Students will use these labs just like they use the regular computer labs, completing school projects, researching, and completing word processing and presentation software. In addition, these labs will give us the opportunity to practice the testing experience before the tests are administered in the spring of 2015. Attached is an article about the Chromebooks from our Department of Learning and Technology. Questions? Contact your school administrator!
