Supporting the Grade 5 to 6 Transition
In early January, we held a virtual meeting to discuss the Fifth to Sixth Grade Transition Process. Middle School Counselors, Curriculum Coordinators, and Middle School Principals talked about what goes on in the spring and summer to help prepare students for the next school level. During this session, coordinators presented information regarding the placement process for Advanced Studies in Grades 6-8.
If you could not join us, we have videos of both presentations, including question and answer segments, linked below

PARENT INPUT FORMS:
Parent input is a valuable component of the placement process. In order to provide input for your student’s middle school placement in ELA, Math, and Science, we gave parents an opportunity to provide the committee with your insights via a Google Form. This form closed on Friday, February 4th. More information about placement will be available for families after the April Spring Recess.
