Congratulations to Mr. McCalla for being selected as the December Staff Member of the Month. There were two students who nominated Mr. McCalla; they said he, "makes school fun for all of us. And in my opinion I think if you have fun at school you want to come and learn even more." Thanks for all that you do for our students, Mr. McCalla!

Getting Ready for the Junior High!

Dear Rising 7th Grade Parents/Guardians:


The Junior High has begun the process of transitioning your son/daughter as a seventh grader! We are confident that the outstanding academic foundation Greene has established will carry on here at the Junior High. In addition, the Junior High has a dynamic after school life with many athletic opportunities and clubs. We look forward to your family joining our Junior High community. While the transition process is in the early planning stages, we are very excited to think about your son/daughter joining us in August! Please put the following dates on your calendar:

  • Wednesday, Feb. 1, 2017 at 10:30am: The Junior High administrative and counseling team will attend the Greene PTO meeting to discuss the transition process.
  • Tuesday, Feb. 28, 2017 at 7:00pm: Rising 7th grader orientation and academic fair at the Junior High.
  • Tuesday and Wednesday, April 25th and 26th, 2017: Rising 7th grade student tours at the Junior High.


There are many more details that I will communicate to parents and students over the next few months. Please watch our spot on the S'more for the most up-to-date information regarding the sixth to seventh grade transition.


Sincerely,


Traci L. Rea, Ph.D.
