Attention 8th Graders and Parents/Guardians,

On Thursday, October 6th, at 5 PM, Ms. Lipschik and Ms. Ganbaatar (aka Ms. Deggy) will present the high school information workshop for you and your parents. Following the workshop, at 6 PM, Mark Twain will host its annual High School Fair in the student cafeteria. We encourage everyone to attend and meet representatives from various high schools (we will be sending the flyer once the high schools confirm their attendance). Ms. Ganbaatar will also be doing classroom presentations in your ID classes about the high school application process and the Specialized High Schools.

If you have any questions or concerns, please come to Room 208 (everyday) or Room 108 (Tues, Wed, Thurs) during Lunch.
We expect everyone’s cooperation and communication throughout the entire process. Our goal is 100% acceptance!
