8th Grade Scheduling Conferences

Welcome to GAMS 8th Grade High School Scheduling Conferences

8th Graders,

“Are you Ready for High School?” 

February 1, 2022

Hello Class of 2026 Students and Families,

We are excited to welcome your son/daughter to Greencastle-Antrim High School next school year. It is our desire to ensure this will be a smooth transition for your family. To begin the process, Mr. Crable has created an informative video that includes important information to help you understand our ninth-grade program and the scheduling process.

Based upon data, teacher recommendation, and ninth-grade requirements students have been pre-enrolled into some of their classes. On February 7 & 8 your son/daughter will receive a list of their course requests for the next school year. Students are encouraged to explore the High School Program of Studies* for more information. In early March, high school administrators and counselors will be available to meet with eighth-grade students during lunches to answer questions and confirm their schedule requests for next year.

If after reviewing this information with your son/daughter, you would like to meet with an administrator or counselor we are making available the opportunity to schedule a virtual high school planning conference. Conference times will be available February 14 – March 11. A link to schedule a virtual conference will be emailed to families on Friday, February 11.

At Greencastle-Antrim High School it is our goal to provide educational opportunities for all students to become lifelong learners, responsible individuals, and productive citizens. The ninth-grade school year will lay the foundation for success after high school regardless of your child’s career path. Please enjoy this video as we welcome you to Greencastle-Antrim High School. We are G-A Proud!
