Next week we will begin the process of selecting courses for next school year. Current 6th and 7th grade students will receive information about how to select courses and receive a paper copy of a choice sheet to plan their courses to be entered on their Google form for selection on Tuesday in advisory. You are their most important resource in planning, so Ms. Rask, our counselor, is emailing the form link to them now along with the links to the course description information so you can help them select courses this weekend, if you would like to. The Google form is restricted to Hays CISD Gmail users only, so students will only be able to access the form if signed into their district Gmail account.
