8th Grade Transition

Good Evening

This message is being sent to all 8th grade Parents. This is High School Principal Steve Morford. On Tuesday, May 15th Spearfish High School will host a Transition Day for all 8th grade students who will be members of the Freshman Class beginning in August of 2018. 8th grade students will report to the High School Auditorium at 1:30 for a brief orientation as well being introduced to their Guidance Counselor and assigned Spartan Time Advisor. The Advisors will then take the students to their classroom for a general question and answer period. Student mentors will also be available at this time. A quick tour of the high school will take place showing students the location of several essential areas of importance throughout the high school. The 8th grade students will report back to the Middle school somewhere around 3:10 PM. Parents are welcome and encouraged to attend this event with your 8th grade student. Parental tips on surviving the freshman year will also be discussed. We are hoping this activity will help ease your students move into the high school next fall. Please call 717-1212 with any questions you may have.

Thank You
