High School Scheduling Dates & Resources

Important Dates for 8th Grade Students

 

January 8-9: Mrs. Wentroble (the School Counselor) comes to the Social Studies classes to give an overview of the scheduling process. (Letters/Important information will be sent home with students on this day, so please ask them about it!)

January 12: Presentations to the Middle School Students by the High School Students/Counselors from 11:50-1:50 at PMS.

January 17: Parent Scheduling Night at Penn Trafford High School for incoming Freshman at 6:00 p.m. Students are encouraged to attend as well.

January 19: Students will input course selections into PowerSchool during the school  day with Mrs. Wentroble. Students need to bring with them their Student Request Form already filled out and their student PowerSchool access  codes. If your child does not know their PowerSchool Access codes, we will have a copy already printed out for them.

January 22-24: Students will need to hand in a signed copy (by a parent/guardian) of their course requests to their homeroom teachers.

January 25-May 24: Students will be permitted to change a course selection for the high school by obtaining a copy of the schedule change form (located outside of Mrs. Wentroble’s office), completing the form, and returning it to Mrs. Wentroble. A parent signature is required for a schedule to be changed. Please remember that NO schedule changes will be permitted after the last day of school!

 


* Please note: A copy of the Program of Studies and the Student Request Form can be found on the Penn Middle School Homepage, as well as, the Penn-Trafford High School Homepage. If you do not have internet access, please have your child see Mrs. Wentroble for a copy.
