We want all eighth graders well prepared when making the transition from middle school to Penn High School; that’s why we organize a variety of open houses and other informational sessions to welcome students, help get them prepared, provide scheduling information and answer all questions.

**Shadowing will not be allowed this year.  Please take advantage of one of the many opportunities to visit and tour Penn instead.
