Current eighth graders will meet in the auditorium tonight to discuss their classes for next school year.
From 6:30 to 8 p.m., the auditorium will be filled with middle schoolers who are looking to joining the East community. It’s enrollment night, which is held once a year for future East parents and students looking for more insight on courses and teachers.
“The purpose of this night is to provide parents and students the opportunity to learn about East,” head counselor Deanna Griffey said.
The agenda includes a short overview from Principal John McKinney, a welcome and introduction from Griffey and a time when students will divide into sessions depending on their last name.
This is a time to ask East teachers questions in order for parents and students to find the information they are looking for.
“Doing this allows the parents and students to ask any specific questions they may have,” Griffey said.
On Tuesday, Jan.13, Griffey headed to Indian Hills Middle School to give presentations about enrollment to the eighth grade class.
She included things like general information about classes, summer school information, and how to fill out their enrollment cards.
Once the registry forms are filled out and all forms are turned in, counselors, administrators and other school staff work to organize the students into classes according to the courses they requested.
“I enrolled in Band, Intro to Studio Art, Drama, and Video Production last year and have really enjoyed all of them so far,” freshman, Robert Tilden said.
