NEXT YEAR’S STUDENT SCHEDULES
Students going into grades 10, 11 and 12 in 2017-18 will receive their schedules in homeroom this Wednesday (May 17). Students with schedule conflicts or concerns then have the last two weeks of school to make an appointment to see their counselor and work on their schedule. The idea is that all returning students should have their schedules finalized before the end of semester exams. Study halls and music lessons will be added this summer.

2017-2018 REGISTRATION PACKETS

Please ask your son/daughter for their 2017-2018 registration packets, as they were handed out in homeroom on Wednesday May, 10. Registration materials are due by June 30. Payments will not be processed until after July 5, 2017. Fees can be paid online after July 5, 2017 through the Ames RevTrak Web Store by credit/debit card at https://ames.revtrak.net .
