Current 8th Graders

March 4, 2024




Dear Parents/Legal Guardians,


Today, I met with your student(s) to discuss their need to choose an endorsement and pathway before entering high school.  Please make plans to attend an information meeting for all 8th graders and their parents/guardians tomorrow, Tuesday, March 5 at 5:30 p.m. in the commons area of the Jefferson High School.  I will present information regarding graduation plans, endorsements, pathways, and scheduling for the upcoming year.  Pizza will be provided, and a question/answer session will also be held.  For those unable to attend, please visit my webpage on the school website, choose the high school campus tab, then the Dean of Academics tab, and finally choose the Current 8th graders tab.


Once your student has chosen ONE Endorsement and ONE Pathway on the Endorsement form, please sign and date it and return it to Ms. Wendy Shelton at the jr. high campus.  You may also bring it with you to tomorrow’s meeting.


Please feel free to email me @ or call me with any questions or concerns.  I look forward to meeting with you and visiting with your student.



Sincerely yours,

Kathi Burney

Dean of Academics
