    Grade 8 Conference

    Ben Franklin Middle School counselors will meet with grade 8 students and their parent(s) or guardian in the spring to complete the transition from grade 8 to high school. Students find it easier to plan their high school courses if they have selected a pathway for post-high school training. The conference includes:

    • academic grade history
    • standardized testing results
    • career planning
    • learning styles
    • high school graduation requirements
    • 4 year planning
    • tips for transition to high school

    Letters will be sent out December or January to schedule conferences with all parents of students in grade 8. Conferences are in January and February.  Watch for your conference letter!
