  • Welcome to Eighth Grade!

  • Welcome to Eighth Grade, Eagles!

    Eighth grade is an exciting, challenging school year. You are challenged with finishing your final middle school year strong and making important decisions about high school --- applying to Magnet schools all over the district, or researching the programs offered by your home school. Either way, your teachers will help you along the way as you strive for excellence in everything you do. Have fun, stay safe, and let's make this year a success!
    Work Hard!
    Stay Positive!
    Make It Happen!
