PRINCIPAL’S MESSAGE: High School Update: Important Information Regarding Upcoming Course Selection Process

May 28, 2020

 

Dear High School Parents,

 

As we head into the homestretch of this school year, we’re starting to think about September.  And, while we don’t know exactly what school will be like then, we know that we will continue to provide rigorous, diverse, exciting course offerings for our high school students. 

 

On June 1st, students will receive their Program Request Form (electronically) in their Petridesschool email account.  Directions, including a time table for submitting their requests will be noted, too.   


We’ve organized some “Meet-ups” over the next few days, to ensure that students are well informed about the elective and Advance Placement courses available, before they make their selections. 

Information about the electives will be posted on our website beginning Friday, May 29th, under the 2020 - 2021 “Course Offering” tab.  Link to website: https://www.petridesschool.com/domain/159

If students are interested in finding out more information about our Advanced Placement courses, it is highly recommended that they join the live Google Meet-up with each course teacher. The schedule and Meet-up links are listed below:
