2018-2019 8th Grade Registration
Dear Future 8th Grade Students, Family and Friends:
The La Joya teachers, administrative team, and staff are excited for your student to transition to their final year of middle school. This is a very important year. Students are in the last phase of preparation for high school and must successfully pass all of their core classes to be promoted.
The purpose of this planning guide is to help you review the course offerings at La Joya Middle School in order to plan the best possible educational program for your student for the 2018-2019 school year.
The goal of La Joya Middle School is to offer a strong sequential curriculum while paying attention to the individual needs of each student. Our educational program offers a seven-period day for students with a focus on the core academics. The curriculum is designed so each student receives instruction in the five required subjects: English-Language Arts (2 periods), Mathematics, History, Science, and Physical Education. Students are also given the opportunity to select an elective course. Our elective program is a balance of academic interventions and enrichment opportunities based on whether a student meets grade level proficiency in English/Language Arts and Math in their 7th grade classes and other indicators.
The course information that follows briefly describes the required academic classes as well as the electives offered. It is important that parents work with their students in reviewing this guide and completing the registration form.
If you have any questions regarding your student’s options for the upcoming school year, please call us at 730-7921.
