In 7th and 8th grades, students move to a block schedule. They have every class on Wednesdays, except for Advisory, but for a short period. On the other days, they have longer classes (blocks), with some classes on Mondays and Thursdays and others on Tuesdays and Fridays. See the Bell Schedule for each grade for details.
The two grades have lunch separately, except for on Wednesdays.
For information on end-of-the-year 8th-grade activities and participation requirements, please read this letter from Vice Principal Leslie Stenger.
