Here is what you need to know about your paper schedule that you will get at orientation:
You do NOT need to pay attention to what days or what times it says that you have all of your core classes (math, English, science, global studies) Many students spend hours making a plan for their schedule based on what the schedule printout from orientation says, but the printout is not accurate in terms of hours and order of core classes! :)
At Mill Creek, we have block scheduling & we also have flexible scheduling on certain days to allow for special programs and teacher collaboration. On the first days of school, we will spend time explaining which days you will have your core classes: math, science, English, and global studies. (This will probably NOT match what the printed schedule says, so ignore the printed days on your schedule for now!)
You will have your ENRICHMENT class (French/Spanish, Careers & Tech, Adolescent Health or Phys Ed) every day during the quarter you have that course. You will also have your two ELECTIVE Classes (marked with a 6 or 7 on the right for '6th' and '7th' hour) every day during the quarter you have that course. On the printed schedule in your orientation folder, you will just want to look for which one enrichment and two elective courses you have in Quarter 1 (Q1), which you have in Quarter 2, etc.
Teachers will explain the schedules for core classes (math, science, English, and global studies) and teacher will also post that schedule each day for students outside the classrooms so you will always be able to look to know where you should go.
