Dear Anoka-Hennepin Students ,
Middle school is an exciting time ! It ’ s an opportunity to explore new interests and challenge yourself . It ’ s also a time to lay a strong foundation for success in high school and beyond .
This registration guide is helpful in outlining the broad range of required and elective courses available to you . As you review it , I encourage you to select new or challenging courses as your electives . You may have different interests than your friends and siblings ; take courses that look right for you .
Talk with your family about your course choices and ask your teachers for advice . You can also speak with your school counselor , assistant principal or homeroom advisor . Your middle school has dedicated staff who are happy to help find the courses that are right for you .
It may seem that adulthood is a long way off but your school years will go by quickly . Work hard , but also remember to have fun trying the many opportunities available to you . I wish you great success in your remaining school years and far beyond .
Sincerely ,
Dr . Kate Maguire Interim Superintendent
