8th grade students have started the course selection process for Abington High School.  Mrs. McDermod met with all 8th graders and reviewed the course selection process.  8th grade students were given the Freshman course offerings for the 2017-18 Abington High School Program of Studies.  Students are asked to review this book and consider elective courses for grade 9.  8th grade teachers will be recommending students for English, Math, Science, History and World Language courses based on academic grades, MCAS/placement tests and course requirements.
Next week, all 8th grade students will meet with Mrs. McDermod and Guidance Counselors from Abington High School to discuss and make their elective selections.  Course selection and academic level placements will then be sent home for parent/guardian review and signature.  Mrs. McDermod is available to help any student or parent/guardian that may have questions.
