In most states, you can start earning high school credits in middle school. Discover five tips to consider when planning your school year.

Attention Students & Parents/Guardians,

In accordance with Virginia state regulations, PWCS Regulation 661-2, Section VII, permits parents of students
who take a high school credit bearing course in middle school to request that the grade be omitted from the student's high school transcript and the student not earn high school credit for the course.

We hope that you are getting through this challenging time. We have been steadily moving ahead and making plans for the 2021-2022 School year. We are expecting that students will be returning to the building 5 days a week. It is our hope that the NEWSLETTERS will give you all of the information needed to make informed decisions with your student regarding classes for the next school year. You must fill in the Academic Advising form located at the bottom of the newsletter by 04.26.2021 in order for us to create your preliminary schedules. Please note that we will do our best to honor your selection on the academic advising form (course requests), but due to class restrictions and available spacing, we may not be able to honor all of them. If you need help filling out the form or have any questions about course selection, please email your counselor.
