6th Grade Orientation

Beginning your child's transition to Carleton.

Dear 5th grade parents,

It is with sincere enthusiasm, as we plan for the 2017-2018 school year, that I write to you to welcome you to Carleton Middle School. In the coming weeks, our counselors Mrs. Lane and Mrs. Lenz, our Assistant Principal Mr. Clark and I will be visiting your children's elementary schools, working with their staff, and planning your child's transition from elementary to middle school.


In addition, I write today to invite you to our 6th grade orientation on Tuesday, March 28, beginning at 6:00 in the evening at Carleton Middle School.


At our orientation event, you will have the opportunity to meet your new administrators and our counselors, ask questions about our school and take a walk around Carleton to familiarize yourself with our building.


If you have questions, please do not hesitate to contact me either by phone or email. On behalf of the Carleton family, we look forward to seeing you on March 28th!


Together in learning,

Mr. Kausch
