Registration for Eastlake Middle School

Registration will be an ongoing process throughout April. In order to better serve the community, Eastlake Middle School will be allowing walk-in registrations.  These walk-in times will take place from 9-12 Monday through Thursday and 1-3 on Fridays.  There will also be two night registrations on April 16th and 17th from 4:00 – 7:00 PM.  Parents are required to book a time for the night events to avoid long lines.  To expedite the process, parents must come prepared with the required materials which can be found on the ELM website (elm.sweetwaterschools.org under the parent tab) for either walk-in or night events.   The sign-up tab will be up shortly, so please check the website frequently for updates.  ELM looks forward to serving you and making the registration process more convenient for our parents.    Please email Karina Campos with any questions/concerns at karina.campose@sweetwaterschools.org.

Math Placement Test for Middle School

Math Placement for Compacted Math (accelerated math course to prepare student to take IM 1 in their 8th grade year) will take place at the Eastlake Middle School Pavilion at 3:30 on April 15, 16 and 24.  The test is supposed to take one hour depending on the student.  The testing period will end at 5:00 to accommodate for set-up and check-in.   All students (even if they are in DLI) should be encouraged to take the test for equity purposes.  Students should bring a #2 pencil.  The test will cover material from 6th grade.  We will be using test results (85 % and above) and teacher recommendations in regards to placement into the Compacted Math Sequence.  Parents will be notified of results and placement suggestions. If there are any questions/concerns, please email Dalila Espinosa at dalilia.espinosa@sweetwaterschools.org.

• 7th grade – 2 years of math (Math 7 & Math 8) compacted in 1 year
