Middle School Transition Book

One of the big issues facing the Middle School Student Council this year was building community amongst the students in grades 6-8. In order to accomplish this they created a project using iBooks Author to help incoming 6th graders and their parents be more at ease with the transition. This project will be utilized during our "Double Stuff Day" when the 5th graders visit the Middle School for the afternoon. Each 5th grader will have an iPad with the project on iBooks so they can read about their new teachers and the experiences they can expect in Middle School. It will also be utilized during the parent meeting to assist parents in learning about Middle School as well. This is an evolving project so they hope to add onto it in the future.
