The middle schools are excited to welcome incoming 6th graders! Please join us for a parent information meeting at the time listed below. At the meeting, principals will discuss middle school schedules, course options, the registration process, and the transition to middle school. We will have counselors, administrators, and fine arts teachers available to answer any questions you may have. Course request forms and course descriptions will be sent home with students the week of February 8. You will need to complete the form and return to your child’s teacher by February 29.
