Students in fifth grade will prepare to transition to middle school. This can be a scary but exciting time for students and parents. Your child's counselor will assist in getting students signed up for classes. There is an informational meeting that will take place at each of the middle schools toward the end of March (see website and handout for specific details). Through guidance lessons, fifth grade students will have a change to ask questions and discuss concerns/fears about middle school. We will also practice opening locks (which is a source of anxiety for most students). Your counselor and teachers are always available to help with any questions or concerns that might arise.
