It consists of Job Shadowing, which is when you get to skip school to watch whoever you want. You also get to have many lessons which take up class time. But the biggest transition from being a 7th to an 8th grader is the responsibilities. You are trusted with so much more and you are allowed to do things on your own.

Thankfully, the teachers at Cherokee help prepare you for many possibilities, and hopefully your ready!

    I am only in 6th grade but now I am not scared to move up grades of thinking they are scary but like you said It will not be that scary. Great Job, you have definitely prepared me for not only freshman year but for 7th and 8th grade as well! Thank you so much for the helpful info! 🙂
