Middle School Registration Information

Middle School Registration Information
 As we near the end of the school year, it is time for you and your 5th-grader to begin planning for middle school.  Your child’s counselor, teachers, other staff members and I want to ensure that you are prepared for this experience.

Your child will be recommended for core courses (Language Arts, Math, Science, and Social Studies) and any support services that are received (IEP, 504, ESL).  This information will be provided to you on a content registration card, and you will have the opportunity to review and approve the information on the card.

 Your child will also be able to select elective courses.  These courses are not required subject areas like reading and math, but instead are optional courses that may be of interest to your child.  Each middle school offers unique elective courses that your child can choose to take.  

 Your child will choose his/her elective courses online using PowerSchool.  School staff will guide each student in this process, as the courses will be selected during the school day.  This process will occur March 20 – March 31.  Once students have selected their courses, you will receive a course verification sheet to review and approve along with the content registration card previously referenced.

 We encourage you to review the elective course options available to your child prior to the course selection period.  You can view the electives offered at your child’s assigned middle school by visiting www.wcpss.net/rising6th.  We look forward to supporting your child during this exciting transition to middle school.
