Transition

Our district spends a considerable amount of time working on transition. We will reserve this section of the newsletter for information to help you and your children with this process. For the purpose of clarification, we will use the following terms for each grade level: Rising 7th Graders (current 6th graders, class of 2024), Rising 6th Graders (current 5th graders, class of 2025), and Rising 5th Graders (current 4th graders, class of 2026).


Rising 7th Graders


The Junior High is looking to implement a program similar to Greene 101. Please respond to this survey to help us plan.


Last week, the following packet was mailed home to rising 7th grade families. The packet included:

  • Your child’s personal course selector with recommendations for 2018-2019 school year

  • Directions for completing the course selector

  • Sample course selector sheets

  • An “at a glance” version of the course planner

  • Immunization requirement


Your child’s course selector was to be completed and turned into his/her homeroom teacher by today, March 2nd. Thank you.


Upcoming Important Dates


March 2

All Course Selectors and any Course Adjustment Request Forms due today



Two immunizations are required by the state of Ohio (ORC 3313.67) before the start of 7th grade. Tdap (tetanus, diptheria and pertussis booster) and Meningitis (MCV4). Your child may already have had them at their 11 year old check up. If so please obtain a copy of those immunizations. If not, please make an appointment for your students to get these two immunizations. Once you have obtained copies of TDAP and MCV4, send them to Laurie Dobrowolski RN at E.H. Greene Intermediate School. Thank you!
