Golden Valley Class Registration THIS Week
Golden Valley Counselors Visit La Mesa
Our 8th graders had the opportunity to visit Golden Valley High School last Thursday to see what high school has to offer. This week, 8th graders will be able to talk to their high school counselors about what they are interested in from sports to career pathways. Talk to your incoming 9th grader about their interests to help them better vocalize their wants and needs to their counselors.
End of the Year 8th Grade Events
Many of our 8th grade parents have asked about 8th Grade Promotion. The Hart District Junior Highs, including La Mesa, have not held 8th Grade Promotions for the past 10+ years. We do have our annual 8th Grade Awards ceremony where we recognize students for academic, character, and leadership. Unfortunately, not all students earn awards. Special invitations are sent home. We are working now on all of our 8th grade activities that also include a dance. More information to come!
