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 2025), Rising 6th Graders (current 5th graders, class of 2026), and Rising 5th Graders (current 4th graders, class of 2027).


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:

  • Wednesday, Jan. 10, 2018 at 10:30am: The Junior High administrative and counseling team will attend the Greene PTO meeting to discuss the transition process.

  • Wednesday, Feb. 28, 2018 at 7:00pm: Rising 7th grader orientation and academic fair at the Junior High.

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

There are many more details that I will communicate to parents and students over the next few months.
