High school counselors from Ballard, Ingraham and Roosevelt will be at Whitman, on May 1st during first period (8:17am to 9:20am) to register our 8th grade students for high school courses.   
Ballard and Roosevelt have mailed out the option sheets directly to students with an instruction sheet.  Students are to review course selection with their families at home, then bring the option sheet to Whitman on May 1st, where they will be able to ask questions and receive any assistance. The options sheets will be collected by the high school counselors on May 1.  If you have not receieved this registration packet from Ballard or Roosevelt and you think you should have, please contact them directly.
For Ingraham these forms are not being mailed home.  Counselors will bring the forms on May 1, and explain to students how to complete them. Students will take the forms home, complete them with their parents/guardians and bring them back to Whitman. There will be a box in the main office to return forms. Students can also mail them directly to Ingraham.
Students should attend the registration session for the high school they are currently assigned.  If you are on a waitlist for another high school you will not be able to register for that high school until you actually have an assignment. 
All students will need to get their current Whitman math teacher so sign off on the math course they have selected for high school.  Students assigned to Ballard and Roosevelt need to get these signatures prior to May 1st .  Ingraham students will get these signatures after May 1st before turning the options sheets in to Whitman or directly to Ingraham. 
If you have questions about this please contact 8th grade counselor, Carley Spitzer at 252-1212 or cmspitzer@seattleschools.org.
