High School, Two Corners Away

High school is not right around the corner. The kids aren't ready yet, though when the time comes, they will be. Right now they're too busy being middle schoolers to be nothing more than apprentice high school students. But they are all moving in that direction. They are designing and carrying out projects that range from animal dissection to social media analysis to fashion design to Civil War history. They are in service to the school in weekly work crews and in their nascent Legacy Projects. They are managing their own costumes and props as well as rehearsals for the all-school play. They are elbow-deep in Algebra and Geometry. The days are full for the eighth graders, and they are passing by, each one, like it or not, a step closer to a new school and new adventures.

Here is a brief calendar for open houses and deadlines for area high schools. High school is not around the next corner, but it's fair to say that it is waiting around the corner after that.
