2018 – 2019 Freshman Parent Night

Dear Parents/Guardians of Incoming 9th Grade Students:

It is our pleasure to welcome you and your student to H.H. Dow High School, an International
Baccalaureate School. The staff and teachers join me in saying we are happy to help you begin your
high school experience. We will do everything possible to help make these years a successful
experience for you and your child. H.H. Dow High School offers a fine academic program, rich in
opportunities for all students. Teaching of the core curriculum, extensive elective offerings,
quality athletics and building a well-rounded individual is essential. We are dedicated to raising
achievement and supporting positive individual student development.

H.H. Dow High School is beginning to plan for the 2018-2019 school year. Our Incoming 9th Grade
Information Night is January 15, 2018 at 6:00 pm.  The parent presentation will start in  the
cafeteria and the student presentation will start  in the main Gold Gym.  Both groups will have an
opportunity to receive information on curriculum and extracurricular activities.  The event will
last approximately 2 hours. High school counselors will meet with Jefferson Middle School 8th grade
students  on February 2, 2018, to finalize  course   requests.

The Curriculum Department is working on updating and releasing the 2018-2019 Secondary Course
Offering Guide. This document will be located on the Midland Public Schools website , under
Parents – Curriculum.

We look forward to the opportunity to meet with you at the Incoming 9th Grade  Information  Night
