8th Grade Washington Field Trip


Greeting Nichols Parents! We are working on a field trip idea to take our wonderful 8th graders to Washington D.C. The trip would be 3-4 days long during the first week of summer vacation. The price for the trip would be between $1200 and $1600. There will be numerous fundraising opportunities to help alleviate the cost of the trip. However there will still be a portion of the cost that will need to be payed. We are trying to see how many of our students and parents are interested in this wonderful opportunity. This trip will be coordinated by an outside party.

Dear Nichols Parents/Guardians,


As a campus, we have adopted the expectation that all students should utilize strong organizational habits.  In order to accomplish this goal, it is necessary that all students follow the Nichols Junior High Binder Organizational Model.  

Beginning this week during our all school Advisory period, students will be setting up their binders.  All students will need the following supplies, and we are asking that you send these to school as soon as possible:

  • Good quality 3-ring binder, (3 inch rings with pocket inserts on front and back covers)
  • Five to six colored tab subject dividers to separate each academic class
  • Zipper pouch to store supplies (3-hole punched heavy duty zip-lock bags also work)
  • Two or more pens
  • Two or more pencils
  • Filler notebook paper
  • One or more colored highlighters (any colors)
  • Assignment calendar for each academic class (provided by teachers)


It is the goal of the district and Nichols Junior High School to equip our students with the right tools and skills necessary to reach their true potential and become successful citizens of our society.

We are off to a great start, and we appreciate your partnership with us!

As part of the district’s strategic plan efforts to actively engage and partner with parents in the educational experience, the Arlington ISD has launched a new, more efficient way for parents to enroll students in the district for the 2014-2015 school year with online pre-registration beginning Friday, Aug. 1. Through infosnap, a secure online enrollment system, families are able to enter a child’s information prior to on-campus registration, thus minimizing wait times and paperwork at registration and ensuring accurate information for all students.

“This new online system will better able us to serve our families by easing the registration process,” Superintendent Dr. Marcelo Cavazos said. “It is an opportunity to eliminate many of the printed forms that must be completed by parents or guardians each year and allow them to complete those forms electronically at a time that is most convenient for them.”

Parents and guardians of returning Arlington ISD students will receive either an email or letter in the mail that has a snapcode and online pre-registration instructions. A snapcode is a unique registration code assigned to each student on a yearly basis. Previously entered data for each student is prepopulated into the infosnap system, making the pre-registration process easier.

Students new to the Arlington ISD do not need a snapcode and those student’s parents and guardians may proceed directly to the infosnap site to begin the pre-registration process.

Before campus registration and schedule pick-up days, parents and guardians are asked to complete the pre-registration process and print a FastPass to allow them to bypass the line for those completing the pre-registration process on-site. Computers will be available at all campuses on assigned registration days for parents to complete the pre-registration process if they do not have access to a computer prior to on-site registration.

For step-by-step instructions and frequently asked questions, click here.

Registration for students new to the Arlington Independent School District this year: English | Spanish
