8th Grade Parents and Guardians:
The 8th Grade Transition Team is comprised of the Principal of Carlmont High School and a group of parent volunteers representing the middle school feeder communities.
Throughout the school year, our 8th Grade Transition Team will be hosting a series of events to provide you and your student with information about Carlmont’s academic program and student enrichment programs, so that you will have the information necessary to choose the most appropriate high school for your student. Each event has a different goal or purpose. You will find a brief description of each event on our calendar.
Our team also publishes a monthly newsletter called the Carlmont Corner. It is distributed to 8th grade families at Ralston and Tierra Linda and is posted each month on this site. If you attend another school and would like to join our mailing list and have information emailed to you, please use the link below.
We look forward to seeing you in the coming months.

Calendar of events for students entering high school in 2017
Carlmont's 8th Grade Transition Team will host a variety of events during the upcoming school year for 8th grade students and their parents or guardians. Our goal is to familiarize future Scots and their families with the wonderful experience Carlmont High School offers!
8th Grade Parent Information Night – Parents only. October 13, 2016. This is our largest event and is intended to provide a broad overview of the academic program at Carlmont. We offer a campus tour prior to the program.
Shadowing - Students only. November- February. Carlmont's shadowing program offers two options for 8th grade students: individual or group shadowing. The objective of our shadowing program is to offer students an opportunity to experience a day on campus. Information on how to sign up will be posted on this page in October.
Student and Parent Forums - Students and Parents. January-March. We offer three Forums (attend one). This is an informal opportunity to learn more about student life at Carlmont High School and to ask questions of current students, parents, teachers and staff. Campus tours will be offered prior to the Forum. Registration will begin in December.
Newsletter - Students and Parents. Monthly. We publish the Carlmont Corner newsletter each month to provide families with comprehensive information about upcoming events, deadlines, registration, address verification and more. The newsletter is distributed to our feeder schools and posted here each month.
In addition to these events, opportunities are available to attend sporting events, music, drama, choral and dance performances. Visit the calendar on the Carlmont website for the most up-to-date information.
