Fall 2018 8th Grade Personal Graduation Plan Schedule and Letter to Parents

To: TJHS 8th grade Parents and Guardians                                                                              November 30, 2018

 

The junior high and high school counseling teams will be meeting with all 8th grade students December 18th-20th to begin the process of transitioning from middle school to high school. This will involve each student developing a high school 4-year plan, also known as a Personal Graduation Plan or a PGP. It is important to know that this is a very fluid process. The PGP can change before your student graduates from high school. However, we want our students to begin planning and preparing for their futures by learning more about themselves through the exploration of their strengths, goals, and interests.

 

We are encouraging all parents of 8th graders to attend the PGP meetings on the appropriate date and time. Tomball Junior High will hold PGP meetings during 8th grade U.S. History classes. There will be no make-up dates for parents, as your student’s PGP will also be reviewed during their sophomore year of high school.

 

What will happen during PGP meetings?

 

  • Graduation Requirements: High school counselors will give a brief overview about high school graduation requirements and required credits.
  • Pathways and Endorsements: High school counselors will give a brief overview of pathways. Students and parents will learn more about the endorsement opportunities offered in Tomball ISD as well as how endorsements correlate with high school course work.
  • Personal Graduation Plans: Students will develop their Personal Graduation Plan (PGP) and select courses for the 9th grade year with the assistance of the counselors.
  • Course Selections: Using their PGPs, students will complete the course selection sheet for their 9th grade year of high school.

 

We believe that collaboration between parents, students, and campus staff are critical for the success of our students. Please plan to attend the personal graduation plan meeting during your student’s U.S. History class. The schedule is as follows:
