Eighth-graders prepare for the big leap to Pinkerton Academy in Derry
More than 100 Hooksett eighth-graders were included in the large turnout, said Chris Harper, dean of academic affairs. Hooksett has signed a one-year contract with the high school, and about 107 eighth graders from the town are scheduled to attend next year as freshmen, according to Pinkerton administrators.
Along with Hooksett, eighth-graders in the four other sending towns — Derry, Hampstead, Chester, and Auburn — are starting the process of choosing their courses for freshman year.
To sign up for courses, eighth-grade students will be given a form that can be completed by parents or teachers and returned to the school by the middle of February. Pinkerton guidance counselors will then have their work cut out for them as they are scheduled to meet with every single student from every single middle school in the sending towns. This will happen from Feb. 17-21 or, in the case of Hooksett, on March 6, Harper said.
