We will be hosting two meetings this week for 8th grade parents. These meetings will provide parents and students information on the new graduation requirements recently approved by the EISD Board of Trustees. The new requirements are the result of House Bill 5, which was passed in the last legislative session. Next year’s 9th graders will be the first class to be fully under these new requirements. There will be two parent meetings next week:
Tuesday – 6:00 PM High School Cafeteria – We will serve a light meal (sandwiches, chips, etc. ) from 6:00 to 6:30. At 6:30 we will start the meeting in the High School auditorium. The meeting should be concluded by 7:30.
Thursday – 8:30 AM High School Cafeteria – We will serve a light breakfast from 8:30 – 9:00. The meeting will start at 9:00 AM in the HS auditorium. The meeting should be concluded by 10:00 AM.
I encourage the parents of all 8th grade students to plan to attend one of these meetings. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
