 Registration for Next Year’s Classes Begins

Registration at the middle schools for next year’s classes will occur the last week of January. Monday, January 13th there will be Parent/Student presentations at Sherando High School from 6:15 - 8:30. Please report to the auditorium.

Registration at Sherando for next year’s classes starts this January 9th and continues until the end of January. Encourage your student to explore the Program of Studies located online for elective choices. Once requests are all in, you will receive a letter with your child’s class choices. At that time you can make any changes to those requests. Schedule changes can be made up until the last day of the school year.

If you are continuing your education after high school, continue to look for scholarships - many are posted on the Sherando website under the School Counseling link. Make sure your FAFSA is done.
If you are planning to go to LFCC next year, be sure to meet with Mr. Bucher so he can assist you with the process. The LFCC Scholarship application is now open but you must apply to LFCC before you can fill out the application for scholarships.

The Guidance Office will be distributing paper copies of student scores and their test booklets to the students soon.
If you plan to go to college, be sure to sign up for an SAT or ACT this spring. See your counselor for information. TBA - a college planning night with a presentation by a college admissions counselor. Watch announcements for further information.

In the next few months, counselors will be meeting individually with sophomores to review their high school plan, discuss career plans and the pathways to those careers.

Choose your classes wisely for next school year. Look at the Program of Studies to see which elective classes match your interests and maybe careers in which you may have an interest.
