A Message to 8th Grade Parents:


LHJH 8th grade parent,


Your student will soon begin their Personal Graduation Plan (PGP) process.  I will be posting all of the lessons we do with students in the “8th Grade Counselor Corner” Google Classroom as well as sending more communications through the Wildcat Chat, PTA email, and directly to your email.  Please click on the attached parent letter for an overview of the PGP process timeline.  


Go Wildcats,
