8th Grade Information

INTRODUCTION

Spring View’s teacher-teams are called academies. Spring view is a highly academic school. All academies have vigorous expectations in the core curricular areas of language arts, mathematics, social science and science. Students are expected to meet or exceed the same high learning standards. More specific information about content standards can be found on the California Department of Education website http://www.cde.ca.gov

Teachers in every academy are prepared to meet the needs of GATE, high achieving, average, struggling, and special needs students. Identified GATE students will be placed in the same academy unless otherwise directed by parents.

High School Community Service Hours

Students may begin collecting community service hours the day after 8th grade promotion.  If hours are accumulated during summer please complete the community service hours form and return it to your high school counselor.

Hello 8th grade students and parents,

It is amazing how fast the past two years have gone with your student here at Spring View Middle School.  The next stage of your student’s education is fast approaching and we are gearing up to assist in that transition. Last week we gave a pre-high school presentation which explained the high school graduation requirements and a brief discussion on how to pick high school classes. Below you will find some important dates for high school:  


  • March 3rd- High School Counselors from both Whitney and Rocklin High Schools visited our campus to discuss 6 year Academic Plans and high school course options.  Please ask your student to share their 6 year plan with you and have a discussion on their academic goals.  The high school counselors gave your student a packet that will have a lot of important information.

  • March 6th- Showcase Night at Whitney High School and Rocklin High School.  We highly encourage all 8th grade students and their parent/guardian to attend Showcase night for your student’s high school. Please see attached flyer for specific information. This is a great time for students and parents to ask specific questions to the high school counselors.  After this night all questions need to be directed to Mrs. Hoekstra .

  • Beginning March 7th- Students will be registering for the high school classes through the Aeries Student Portal.  It is very important for students to have a signed and completed Course Request Form to use as a guide when registering for their classes.  If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact Mrs. Hoekstra.  


If you have any further questions that are not addressed at the above informational presentations, please let Mrs. Hoekstra know.  If I do not know the answer, I will contact the high school on your behalf to get your question answered.  The high school campuses have asked for parents to please not contact them directly.  Since they are busy with the graduating seniors, they would prefer for incoming freshman questions to be directed to the middle school.  


Thank you for your continued support.
