6th Grade Bump Day Coming Soon!

February 10 & 24

What is "Bump Day"?

In one week you will be enrolling your student for 2016-2017! Students are always excited about next year and usually at least a little nervous, too. 7th grade marks the beginning of your child's preparation for High School. Higher academic expectations, greater responsibility, movement between all classes, Chromebook integration in instruction, more teachers are all coming soon. To help ease any concerns they might have, we created Bump Day.

Bump Day is a highlight for our students every spring! Bump Day is a time set aside each year for your student to experience first hand what school will be like next year. Our 6th grade students will spend part of a day with 7th grade classes so they can learn what they can look forward to this fall.

This year we have scheduled our 6th grade students for their Bump Day by Language Arts section. Please check your child's schedule to confirm their class section.

  • Mrs. Tuttle's period 2/3 Language Arts class will Bump on Wednesday, February 10th
  • Mrs. Tuttle's period 5/6 Language Arts class will Bump on Wednesday, February 24th

Your student will have a regular class day until lunch time. At that time our faculty will help them to sit mixed among 7th graders to talk and ask questions about next year. They will then join the 7th graders in their period 5 & 6 classes (Math, Language Arts, or History). Your student will return to their regular 6th grade class around 2 pm to finish their day.

If for some reason your student is not at school for their assigned Bump Day, we are happy to arrange another chance for your child to shadow in 7th grade. Just contact Mrs. Morgan in admissions to make those arrangements. Please contact Mrs. Kanzler if you have any questions about Bump Day.

Thank you for choosing Traders Point Christian Schools for your child! We look forward to seeing them in 7th grade this fall.
