FAQs Gr 6
How will my student know how to navigate his/her way around the middle school?
There are several ways students will transition to the middle school.
First, students are visited by the principal during their 5th grade year at their elementary school for
a brief exposure to the principal and guidance counselor.
Then a parent orientation is offered tentatively in May. Parents tour the school and ask questions as needed.
Next, students take a field trip the the middle school with their 5th grade teachers for a presentation and
tour around the school prior to their 5th grade year ending.
During the summer of the 5th to 6th grade year,an orientation summer school program is offered for incoming Grade 6 students.
Finally, on the weekend prior to school starting the middle school hosts a celebration of beginning our school
year called the "Extravaganza". This offers still another opportunity for students to walk through the school and
visit their 6th grade cluster.
