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 has begun the process of transitioning your son/daughter as a seventh grader! We are confident that the outstanding academic foundation Greene has established will carry on here at the Junior High. In addition, the Junior High has a dynamic after school life with many athletic opportunities and clubs. We look forward to your family joining our Junior High community. While the transition process is in the early planning stages, we are very excited to think about your son/daughter joining us in August! Please put the following dates on your calendar:

  • In light of a scheduling conflict, we will be moving Parent Orientation/Academic Fair to February 27 at 7:00 p.m. The Special Education Orientation for Rising 7th Graders will also be moved to February 27 at 6:00 p.m.

  • Wednesday and Thursday, April 25th and 26th, 2018: Rising 7th grade student tours at the Junior High.


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!

Lobby Guard

The Greene School will soon be implementing a system to enhance our security and allow us to manage our visitors more effectively. We will be using "Lobby Guard" which will require all visitors planning to enter the Greene School to have and produce identification. If visitors do not have an ID, they will not be given access to the school. We will provide more information as we get closer to the implementation date.

Shop for everyone on your gift list this holiday at smile.amazon.com/ch/31-1298442 and Amazon donates to Edwin H. Greene Intermediate School PTO.
