It may be hard to believe, but that eighth grader will soon be a freshman in high school. Not sure what to expect? Then head over to Desert Ridge Middle School to get information about the transition.
The middle school is hosting a La Cueva High School Community Showcase from 6-7 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 27, to help parents and students learn what their next phase in school will be like. The showcase isn’t just for eighth graders moving on to La Cueva.
Kindergarten, fifth to sixth grade and eighth to ninth grade transition information will be presented at the showcase. The all-ages event will provide information about elementary and middle schools that feed La Cueva.
Elementary schools that feed into La Cueva include Dennis Chavez, Double Eagle, Hubert Humphrey and North Star. Middle schools include Desert Ridge and Madison, with Madison also feeding Sandia High School.
For more information about the showcase, contact Desert Ridge Middle School at 505-857-9282. Desert Ridge Middle School is located at 8400 Barstow St. NE.
