Future Planning . . .

February 18th, 2013

Greetings from the high school,

March is always an exciting and busy time at MOC-Floyd Valley High School, and this year is no exception! We are approaching the final quarter of the school year, students are wrapping up winter activities and moving into the busy spring season, and seniors are getting ready to make the leap to the next exciting chapter of their lives.

The seniors aren’t the only ones making important choices, however. On March 11, at 7:15 p.m., we will hold an important pre-registration meeting for current students in grades 9 – 11 along with parents/guardians. The purpose of this meeting will be to provide information that will allow for great decisions regarding next year’s class selections and planning for beyond.

At this meeting, we will share exciting information regarding our new Career and College Readiness (STEM—Science, Technology, Engineering, & Math) Academy. This joint venture with Unity Christian High School and Northwest Iowa Community College will allow students the opportunity to earn both high school and college credit. Courses will be offered in the areas of Health Science and Business & Manufacturing. Learning opportunities will be innovative and involve partnerships with business and industry.

During the week following our March 11 meeting, Mr. McDonald and Mr. De Jong will work with students to pre-register for classes. Using this information, we will then develop a master schedule for the 2013-14 school year that takes into account student choices.

We look forward to partnering with you on March 11!
