Registration Information for the 2021-2022 School Year

May 10, 2021

Parents and Students of 2021-22 Thatcher Middle School Students: 

It’s that time of the year to get pre-registered for next school year! We are excited to start planning for a new year. Every year, most 6th grade students are excited, but yet very nervous to move up to middle school. Therefore, we have made some adjustments to our class offerings to help develop some confidence in our students and ease the transition. All incoming 7th graders will take six (6) preassigned courses and one (1) elective class. Choosing an elective during the pre-registration process does not guarantee they will be assigned to this course.

The Course Request Module in ParentVue/StudentVue will be open from May 12th - 17th.

Our 8th grade students will be excited to be one year closer to heading on to high school. All incoming 8th graders will take five (5) pre-assigned courses and two (2) elective classes. As stated before, choosing an elective during the pre-registration process does not guarantee they will be assigned to this course. 

There are always changes each year to a few classes and handbook rules so all parents and students will need to watch for those changes in the next few months. 

We are looking forward to resuming a normal educational experience for all of our students. We have all learned some new ways to deliver and accept assignments and communicate through the Google Classroom platform. I am sure this will continue and will be a positive solution for many situations in the future.

RETURNING FAMILY

If your student is returning or you have had ANY student in our school district at anytime over the past 10 years (does not have to be the student you are registering now), then you are considered a RETURNING FAMILY* and should use this link to access your ParentVue account.

 

If as a returning family, you do not know your ParentVue account information or have never set one up, please follow the steps below:

  • Try using the forgot password link. If you have access to the email address that is on file in our system, you will be emailed your account information.

 

  • If the forgot password link does not work for you or you have never set up an account, please contact the office of where your child will be attending or the District Office.

Please DO NOT create a new account if you have had a student in our school district before as this will only delay the registration process as it will create a duplicate parent/student record.
