Welcome to 8th Grade!

  • Dear Students and Parents/Guardians:

    The teachers, counselors, administrators, and staff at Hixson Middle School are looking forward to the start of the 2020-2021 school year! We have begun planning challenging and interesting courses, programs, and activities and we look forward to sharing these with you.

    The following ​Course Description and Guide to Student Program Planning​ is provided to all students to assist in planning course work for eighth grade. Inside you will find the course descriptions offered in eighth grade and the course selection form. In order to take advantage of this valuable tool, it is essential that both guardians and students thoroughly review the contents. ​Please read the information thoroughly and make your selections carefully. All course requests are final. ​Staffing and scheduling are based on your course selections; therefore, making your choices wisely is very important. Your choices are one of the most important factors that go into our planning for the upcoming school year, so we thank you in advance for thoughtfully selecting courses and taking this process seriously.

    Your counselor will be happy to answer any further questions you may have. Please feel free to contact your grade-level counselor directly.
