8th Grade Families: As you are all signing your student up for classes next year, I wanted to share the High School Planning Guide which has various course codes, explanations on requirements, etc. I used when I presented to students and families this week. Clink this 

link  which also featured in the PowerPointThe registration window closes March 29th but as a Modified Calendar school we have less time in the building, so we want students to get this done before they leave for the field trip next week, meaning Wednesday of next week. Even if student’s complete registration on their own, please return the forms to us so we have a hard copy (there are times where electronic stuff doesn’t work and we need a backup for reference). Southeast Raleigh HS will be here tomorrow, Broughton on Friday and Enloe on Monday to help with the process if you want to go through Registration here. Teacher recommendations have been distributed so they should have made it home with you, and students need Parent signatures on their Registration worksheet (Pink) and Teacher Recommendations (yellow)  in order for us to make sure we have the green light to sign them up. If you have further questions, shoot me an email (
