Counselor Twilight Appointments and Skyward Registration

Greetings 8th grade parents of students attending Seminole High School next year,

Do you have questions regarding registration for the upcoming school year? Can’t meet with your child’s ninth grade school counselor during the day?  Please join us for Counselor Twilight Appointments on the following dates: February 10, 11, and 13, 2014 from 4pm - 7 pm.  Contact your child’s ninth grade school counselor to set up an appointment if you wish to meet and your schedule doesn’t permit meeting during school hours.
 
Meetings are 20 minutes long and we can discuss any topic you wish, but parents typically like to review course selections and graduation requirements for the class of 2018.  Please be sure to discuss choices with your student(s) as the choices are made to insure that the selections will satisfy graduation requirements and insure their success.
 
Students received a SHS Freshmen Curriculum Guide and a yellow Registration form during the registration information sessions at our feeder schools to bring home to share with parents. We collected a white Registration form from each student; however the yellow form will take precedence. We encourage students to input their course selections in Skyward; students can request courses via Skyward until Friday, February 14th.  Click here for the Skyward Quick Reference Guide which includes directions.  If you decide to register your child via Skyward, please return the signed Guide and Registration form (yellow) to your child’s middle school counselor by Tuesday February 18h.  
 
Due to class size, the opportunity for schedule changes will be difficult so it is very important to plan carefully.

School Supply Store

     The GLMS PTSA has a new SCHOOL STORE. To make this the most successful store possible, we are asking for donations to help fill the shelves. The items of most importance are loose leaf paper (college and wide), mechanical pencils, lead (.05, .07, .09), pens, and highlighters. If you would like to help, but don’t like to shop, you may also donate gift cards or make a monetary donation. Please drop your donations off at the GLMS front desk Monday – Thursday 9am to 3pm. As always, we thank you for all your support! The PTSA would not be possible without the support of our GLMS families.
