Student Schedules and Courses 2020-21 | Middle School 2021-22 | Watch: Middle School Program
All students in 6th, 7th, and 8th grade at P.K. Yonge take four courses in fall and four courses in spring. Check out the Middle School Program to hear more details about middle school schedules. For information about middle school classes, please take a look at the Middle School Course Guide.

School Counseling
Counselors do not work all summer, but do make time in early summer  and before school starts to consult with families regarding the upcoming school year. Please connect with your counselor via email. Ms. Carbajales usually returns to campus prior to school starting. Dates are shared with families closer to that time. | mcarbajales@pky.ufl.edu

Student Schedules and First Day Procedures
On the first day of each school year, students arrive on campus and find their first period class and location posted on the windows of the Cafeteria. Students are listed by grade level and in alphabetical order. Staff are on hand before school to help students find their names and the locations of their first period classes.  Complete class schedules will be shared with students in their first period class.

How to Get Skyward Information | Details
Skyward is the student information system we use to communicate with families, for grading, scheduling, and many other things! Log-in information will be provided to families on the Friday before school starts. We ask that families always keep Skyward updated with current phone numbers, addresses, email addresses, and emergency contacts. Don’t forget!

Middle School Interests | Survey
Rising 6th or 7th grade students interested in Band, FIRST® LEGO® League, or Performing Arts complete the Middle School Interest Survey to indicate interests for the coming school year. For rising 8th grade students, your school counselor begins reaching out to families toward the end of their 7th grade year to gather top 1-8 elective class rankings of new-to-P.K 8th grade students. Expressions of interest and rankings do not guarantee a student’s elective choice, but we make every effort to accommodate student preferences.

Summer Reading
There is no assigned summer reading for the summer of 2021. If you’re looking for suggestions, check out the P.K. Yonge Hidden Library Blog for book reviews.

Supply Lists
Supply lists are provided during the summer.
