Abbott Rising 7th Grade Bulletin
May 1st, 2023
Message From The Principal
Good evening, future 6th graders & families!
It's hard to believe that we are only twenty short school days away from the end of the 2022-2023 school year! I hope that our future seventh graders are ending their sixth grade strong and ready for middle school. Please continue reading to find out ways we are trying to ensure that our students start next school year in middle school off right!
In the upcoming weeks, our future 7th graders will have an opportunity to visit Abbott with their 6th grade teachers. During this time, they will have a presentation about Abbott Middle School and middle school expectations. They will also tour the building and get to talk to some of our current 8th graders. Please see below for our schedule of spring visits. If you do not see your child's school, please call our main office at 847-888-5160. Please note that some of our special programs have already visited.

Also, we will be holding a parent night for our rising seventh graders on Wednesday, May 17th at 6:00 PM. This is a great opportunity to learn about Abbott and what your middle school student's day will be like next year. It will also be a good time to ask questions.
Please also check out information about this summer's Middle School Experience which will be held August 1st-3rd. The Middle School Experience is a voluntary in-person program that will be hosted at each middle school and will feature community and team-building activities aligned to social-emotional learning standards. The programming aims to familiarize these students with their teachers, peers, their buildings, and schedules. Students will participate in a variety of activities for critical thinking, creativity, collaboration, and communication.
Students who register will attend programming at the middle school they will be attending for the 2023-24 school year. There will be no fee, and transportation will be provided for eligible students if they are registered by June 1. Sign up your incoming 7th grader here. Students must be registered for the 2023-2024 school year before you can sign them up. Please see the attached flyers for more information.
We look forward to meeting you and partnering with you. You play a very important role in your child's middle school education which lays a foundation for success in high school and beyond.
We want to be sure that our students succeed through building relationships, relevance, and rigor!
