23-24 6th grade Update

May 16, 2023

Good Afternoon!

I cannot believe how quickly time is flying. Before we know it, our rising 6th graders will be starting middle school at Nipher. Coming up, there are plenty of opportunities for your student to get into the building. Please see below for information regarding Moving in the Middle and other events.

Moving in the Middle

This Thursday, May 18, rising 6th graders will be visiting Nipher Middle School to meet Dr. Havener, Dr. Dickinson and Mr. Taylor. Additionally, they will meet the 6th grade teachers and take a tour of the building. We are excited to see them.

6th Grade Orientation

In order to welcome your student to Nipher in the fall, we are scheduling 6th grade orientation. Please choose one slot for your student to attend an hour-long orientation. During this orientation, students will receive their schedules, tour the building, and engage in team building activities. Date options are:

  • 8/2 at 5:00pm
  • 8/2 at 6:00pm
  • 8/8 at 8:00am
  • 8/8 at 9:00am.
Here is the sign-up. You are also welcome to come to Nipher with your student on 8/8 between 10:00am and 6:00pm to get your student's picture taken and independently walk their schedule.

Do not worry if your student cannot attend any of these orientation dates and times. Please know you can stop by the main office any time after August 8th between 8:00 and 3:00pm to pick up your schedule and walk the building. If your student is unable to get their picture taken on August 8th, we will have a time during the school day for students to take their picture (date: TBA)

Summer Reading

Please see that linked menu of summer reading challenges for your student. Completing this menu will ensure a strong start to the ELA school year.

Summer in the Library

Meet Mrs. White (right) and Ms. Groves (left). They are your librarians here at Nipher and are amazing at helping you foster your love of reading. There are three dates over the summer where you can come to the library and check out books. They are 6/14, 7/20 and 8/8 between 10:00am-1:00pm. What a great opportunity to complete your summer reading.
