Today I went to the informational meeting at HPMS for parents of 2010-2011 7th graders. They presented the scoop on electives, athletics and how to count foreign language as a high school credit. It was eye-opening. Now I find myself second guessing the long term plan I had for my daughter which went kind of like this: Keep on dancing, continue shooting hoops as long as it’s fun, make good grades, be a Chi Omega, and then have a cool career that makes you super happy.
Questions not answered in today’s orientation:
- Does she need high school French 1A in 7th for the plan outlined above?
- What ever happened to girls taking home economics and boys taking shop class?
