8th Grade Award Night
8th Grade Awards Night Ceremony
Dear Paresnt and/or Guardian,
We are approaching the end of the school year, which means the Northbrook Middle School's Awards Ceremony is right around the corner. At Northbrook, we believe it is important to recognize students for their hard work and academic achievements.
During the ceremony, students will be recognized for earning Principal's List (all A's), Honor Roll (all A's and B's), and Citizenship Awards, to name a few. Please be aware that the final day to qualify for these awards is April 21, 2023. Students must have the required grades in order to qualify for their respective award(s) by this date.
The Award Ceremony will be held at Free Chapel Church (855 Northbrook Parkway) on Monday, May 8, 2023 beginning at 6:00 PM.
Please be sure to mark your calendars and continue to monitor your child's grades to ensure their award qualification. Students who qualify for an award will receive an invitation to the ceremony in early May.

GCPS 8th Grade PSAT - October 25th
GCPS students in 8th grade will take the PSAT on Oct. 25 at no cost. The PSAT 8/9 is a test that helps determine what students need to work on most so that they are ready for college when they graduate from high school. It’s part of the College Board family of assessments that includes the SAT college-admission assessment and the PSAT/NMSQT, a preview of the SAT. The PSAT 8/9 tests the same skills and knowledge as the SAT and PSAT/NMSQT, but in a way that makes sense for 8th graders.
