Registration Event for Incoming 6th Grade Students
Wednesday, April 17, 2019 8:40 AM

This event has been rescheduled to Tuesday, May 21.

Do you have a 5th grader planning to attend JPS in the fall, or know someone who does? All current 5th grade students and their families should plan to attend our registration event on Tuesday, May 21 from 6:00 to 8:00 PM. Students should attend this event in order to get the classes they want and have their schedules ready by orientation in August.

At the event, our incoming students and their families will learn about what classes they’ll be taking in 6th grade and will sign up for their elective classes. We will have presentations in English, Spanish, and Somali.

Fifth grade students who cannot attend this event will have the opportunity to register for classes at their current schools, but we would like to see as many of our incoming students and families as possible at this event!
