Prairie Ridge High School
8th Grade Night - Welcome Class of 2021
Eighth Grade Night will be held on Thursday, February 2 at 6 p.m. in the gym. Please enter through the main lobby doors and stop by the registration table to pick up the evening’s program and your student’s packet.
During the presentation, building leaders will discuss a variety of topics of high importance to PRHS families. Your attendance at this program is mandatory as it marks the first step in the high school registration process. The parents’ task for the evening will be to help your child select two electives for each semester, for a total of five academic subjects each semester. Physical Education, Freshman Seminar, Band, and/or Chorus are options that can be chosen in addition to these two electives. Please note that if you do not attend this evening event, classes for the next school year will be automatically selected.
Your student’s PSAT 8/9 results, as well as a working copy of the registration form that contains the English, math, and science courses for which your student has been recommended, will be mailed home before January 18, 2017. Please note, an official copy of the registration form will be filled out and turned in on February 2, 2017.
Besides the presentations on academics, we will be hosting a PR Showcase to promote increased involvement and awareness of the activities Prairie Ridge has to offer. Involvement in school athletics and activities plays a vital role in your student’s academic success in high school. In fact, one of the most accurate predictors of post-secondary success for students is their involvement in extracurricular activities of some kind during high school.
