Tuesday, March 17th from 6:00 - 7:00 PM

Garnet Valley Middle School Auditorium

We are excited to share with you the date for our upcoming 5th to 6th Grade Transition: Parent Night. Please join us on Tuesday, March 17th at 6:00 PM in the Garnet Valley Middle School Auditorium.

This presentation will focus on explaining the daily routine of a 6th grade student. We will also be sharing background information on our course selection process. The 2020-2021 school year will mark the second year for student elective choice here at GVMS. We will conclude the evening by sharing a quick overview of the various elective opportunities that are available to our students.

Our entire presentation will be available to view online after our presentation on March 17th. We will also have our 2020-2021 GVMS Course Selection Guide available online for families to discuss the various course options for next year. Something new for this year is the 2020-2021 Visual Guide to Electives. This presentation will provide our students and families with the opportunity to get a quick overview of what they can expect in the various elective courses.

We hope you are able to make it out to our presentation on March 17th at 6 PM. We look forward to seeing you there!
