IMPORTANT See your counselor if you’d like help in selecting your classes for next year. You may input your course selections into Skyward online starting Jan. 16, or you’ll have the opportunity to enter them in study hall on Jan. 28 & Feb. 2. You must turn in your course selection sheet at that time.
Instructions will be posted on the school’s website. You will need your own Skyward login information (not your parents’). See Mrs. Orcholski in Guidance if you need your login information. Please make sure to turn your course selection sheet in to your study hall teacher at the time your study hall inputs their choices.
