8th Grade

A group of students in caps and gowns for graduation

Dear Eighth Grade Families:
It is a privilege for AAA to journey with our graduating class towards high school each year.  We are fortunate to have so many excellent secondary schools in our area, and we value the opportunity for them to meet our wonderful students.  To help you through the high school process, all of the resources from the Grade 8 Parent Meeting are below for you to reference as needed.  Please contact Eileen Wolpert (ewolpert@ancillae.org x101) with any questions.  We wish you the best of luck as you make plans for your child's next step and know that we support you during this important time!
