8th Grade Timberline Registration

8th Grade Registration for TMS for next school year 2023-2024


Counselors will be in 7th grade classes on Thursday, January 12th  to present to students.  We will be going over the course catalogue, handing out a planning sheet for their classes for next year, and answering any questions.  On Thursday January 19th, we will be back in classes to help students register online for next year.  It is our hope that during the time between the 12th and the 19th, they can look at the course catalogue to better help them prepare for selecting classes of interest on the 19th.

Students are not guaranteed electives that they choose, but we try our best to get students in the classes they request as much as possible.  We also allow students the ability to try and change electives in the first two weeks of school if they do not get placed in the electives they chose, but again, there is no guarantee.

All current 7th grade students attending Timberline Middle School and living within the TMS boundary will automatically be registered to start school in the fall 2023. There is no registration paperwork to turn in to the middle school office.
