    Dear ORMS 8th Grade Parents:

    Monday, October 15thORMS will host three parent informational meetings on high school graduation plans in the ORMS Library. The first two will be at 9:00 am and 1:00 pm. If you plan on attending one of these meetings, please be sure to come early because you have to have your ID processed through our Raptor system in order to attend. If you email Silvia Penrose at SPenrose@nbisd.org by October 12th at 2:30 pm that you plan to attend one of these meetings, and you have already been Raptured in our system with your ID, then we can get your visitor badge ready and waiting for you.

    The other meeting on Monday, October 15th is scheduled for 6:00 pm. There is no need to worry about being Raptured into our system during this meeting.

    ORMS Counselors will host student informational meetings through 8th grade English Language Arts classes on October 17th and October 18th! Students will learn about graduation plans, endorsements and how to use Career Cruising to plot and plan their high school courses for all four years.

    Once students have attended their 8th grade info meeting held during their ELA class period, they need to head home to share, discuss, and plan their four year high school plan with their parents/guardians. Students need to show their parents Career Cruising and have meaningful conversations about what they want to take in high school. Parents need to also share their academic expectations with their student as well. Selecting these courses will take place of the traditional registration process. Students will select their courses for 9th grade as well as 10th, 11th and 12th grades. The only difference is that the courses selected for 10th, 11th and 12th grade will be reviewed each year prior to fully registering. The 9th grade courses are being selected during this high school graduation meeting with their middle school counselor.

    After the above planning takes place, then parents must sign up for a high school graduation plan meeting with an ORMS Counselor. At that meeting, the 8th grade student, at least one parent and an ORMS Counselor will review the course selections for all four years of high school. The counselor will be available to address any questions or concerns as well. These appointments are 30 minutes long.

Tutorials will be available with Mr. Wilson during football season. A note is needed from either myself or a parent if a student plans to attend tutorials in the morning. 

During basketball season tutorials will be available Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday from 8:00-8:15 with me. Mr. Wilson will be available for afternoon tutorials. 

During track season tutorials will be available Monday-Thursday from 3:35-4:05. Mr. Wilson will be available for morning tutorials. 

His tutorials schedule is below.
