A MESSAGE TO PARENTS/GUARDIANS AND STUDENTS
This is an important time of the year as you begin the course selection process that will lead to your schedule for the 2011-12 school year. Over the next several weeks you will be actively involved in the course selection process. The faculty and guidance staff will gladly assist you in this selection process. I encourage you to take this work very seriously. Please consult with your parents, teachers, administrators and certainly your counselor to arrive at the most appropriate course selection possible.
It is a special pleasure to welcome the incoming ninth grade class to Donegal High School. This is the first of a series of activities to help ensure that you have a successful transition from middle school to high school. As you look through the curriculum guide you will see general information about our school, a registration calendar, course selection sheets, a planning guide and specific course descriptions from each of our departments. The booklet has been carefully prepared for the benefit of all students.
As you review the registration calendar you will note there are deadlines to return course selection sheets. We work to maintain these deadlines so that, if possible, we can provide a tentative schedule for all students before the end of the current school year. The master schedule at Donegal High School is driven by student selection. As a result, our school staffing is determined by the selection of courses that our students make during this process. It is imperative that you take the time and responsibility to select your courses wisely for the coming school year. There will be no student initiated schedule changes after May 6, 2011.
If you have any questions or need further clarification, please do not hesitate to discuss this with your counselor, a faculty member or me.
