Dear 8th Grade Parents,
*This is just an update on Notre Dame's deadlines from the Letter you received this weekend.
High School season is kicking it off into high gear! Applications for one school have already been mailed. Nazareth application parents, you can breath a sigh of relief! If you have wandered over to the 8th grade classroom website, you have probably noticed all of the High School events coming up. We have open houses, exam reviews, lunch visits, application deadlines, and high school placement tests all coming up within the next month and a half.
Information about each school's application process can usually be found by looking at the high school's Admissions page. These pages and their links have information about the application, exam registration, shadow dates, and the high school forms.
Below I have listed some of the upcoming application deadlines. If you found I am missing something on the calendar, please let me know so I can add the event in. *Update - We now have Notre Dame's deadline.
Thank you for your assistance!

Regarding the high school forms (transcripts and recommendations), please make sure that these have all been sent in. Today was the homeroom deadline for the students to bring them in, but I am still missing some paperwork from students. If there is some confusion about what forms are needed, please let me know. I have no problem working with the students during recess to print out the forms that they need. There has been some concern regarding recommendations and how they are being done this year, and I wanted to take some time to address the process.
Paper recommendation forms need to be brought in to me during homeroom.
Online recommendation forms can be sent through the program to the teacher's email. I would ask that you let me know which teachers you are sending them to, and this way I can keep track of all the recommendations.
If there are any questions or concerns about this process, please feel free to email me!
