Orientation and registration for 8th grade set

   Conrad High School will hold an orientation and registration for incoming freshmen April 28 at 7 p.m. in the High School Commons, 308 S. Illinois St.
   The process will begin when Debbie Ostertag, CHS guidance counselor attends the eighth grade classes at UMS on April 23, where she will present an informational PowerPoint and hand out the Conrad High School New Student Information Planning Booklet.  
   This booklet contains a list and description of all classes offered, as well as extra curricular activities.
   It also contains the requirements for graduation, as well as, college entrance.
   Plus, it contains suggested course loads for each grade level. The students will then be able to take the information home and discuss it with their parents/guardians before the Orientation/Registration on April 28.
   On the 28th the orientation and registration will begin with an introduction by Ken Larson, CHS principal.
   Next, current freshmen, and teachers of freshmen will give short talks about procedures and expectations at CHS.
   Then, there will be a short presentation about graduation, college admittance, and scholarship requirements.
   After the presentations, incoming freshmen and their parents/guardians will choose classes and fill out registration forms for the 2009-10 school year.
