Fourth Into Fifth Grade Transition Information
On June 1st or 2nd, fourth graders will be visiting the Middle School to learn all about 5th grade. Our hope is that students will become more familiar with the building as well as the 5th grade teachers. We will be buddying up each 4th grader with a 5th grader to learn how to navigate a typical 5th grade schedule and also get a feeling for the layout of the building itself. More information will be coming from Mr. Whipple, Middle School principal, in the near future.
Students entering 5th grade in the 2017-2018 are invited to participate in 5th grade Transition Camp at Big Hollow Middle School. This will be a fun-filled experience for students to participate in many different activities at the Middle School. Students will have the opportunity to practice their schedules, learn middle school expectations, learn on chrome books and participate in fun games and activities. Transportation is included with your registration! Students will attend for 3 sessions in August (8:30-11:30 AM August 15-17). More information is available on the Big Hollow website. Parents will be invited to join their child on Thursday for student led tours and wrap up activities.
