8th Grade Transtion Night

Feb 12th 2020 GHS Presentation- Thank you to Mrs. Alfiero- Director of Guidance for coming to present about GHS course options. Much of the information shared is general state requirements and applies to all high schools in CT.

Freshman Schedule Model- All students, even if the student plans on attending another high school, will complete a GHS course registration form. This form will assist the other high school they will be going to and will also be saved as a backup, just in case a student decides to switch back to GHS. 8th grade teachers made recommendations and they will be due in March.(Exact dates TBD)

The Plan of Study book is located on the GHS Counseling website. Consider viewing the plan of study for the high school your child plans on attending.

Important Dates for 8th Grade Families- Attached is a flyer that was handed out with some important dates and events that are coming up for 8th graders to be aware of. Promotion will be set at the April Board of Education meeting. Typically, 8th grade Promotion falls on the evening before the last day of school. Currently, estimating approx. 6 promotion tickets will be available per family.

Any questions, please feel free to contact Mrs. Scholl at 860-376-7630 or by email at
