MIDDLE SCHOOL STUDENT ELECTIVE FORM – DUE BY WEDNESDAY, 8/15

The time has arrived!  Attached below for your review is the 2018-19 Middle School Elective Form for the first semester.

Included for your reference are brief descriptions of the courses offered.  As there have been some changes to elective policy this year, we ask that you please be sure to READ AND FOLLOW ALL DIRECTIONS LISTED.

STUDENT COUNCIL & NJHS CLARIFICATION:

For those students that are planning to run for Student Council, or to join the NJHS (National Junior Honor Society) later this fall, you will see that there are courses listed on the schedule.  Only those students CURRENTLY on Student Council or in the NJHS from last year should select those courses.  All others planning on running/joining should choose “Study Hall” on that day.  The office will make the necessary course changes automatically after elections.

In order to ensure timely scheduling of courses for the start of the year, we ask that you review the selections with your student and return a SIGNED and completed form no later than WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 15TH to the school office.

For your convenience, the attached form is fillable and can be emailed back to marys@trinityroselle.comPLEASE REMEMBER TO SAVE A COPY OF THE COMPLETED FORM PRIOR TO EMAILING, otherwise we may receive a blank form.  If you prefer to print and complete a paper copy, forms may be dropped off at the front desk at any time.

Please feel free to contact the school office with any questions you might have.

We look forward to a fantastic 2018-19 school year and can’t wait to see all of our smiling students soon!

School Toolbox Supplies – Orders are In!

For those who placed an order online with School Toolbox for student supplies PRIOR to the July 1st deadline, your orders are in!

HOWEVER, we still have some sorting to do to ensure that students receive all of the supplies they ordered.  

WE NEED YOUR HELP!  If anyone is available TODAY or tomorrow (Friday, August 10th) and would like to assist us with sorting, we could sure use your help!  It shouldn’t take long and is not a difficult job at all.  We would like to have this task completed before this weekend.

For those of you who prefer to pick-up your toolbox prior to the first day of school, please contact the school office to let us know what day/time you would like to come in during the week of August 13th – 17th.  Any toolbox kits that are not picked-up will be placed into the student homeroom for use on the first day of school.
