*7th Grade Families*

Mrs. Woof has teamed up with our Athletic Director (and some amazing parent volunteers) to offer a few fun activities JUST for our incoming Class of 2027! Get a chance to get to know your classmates before the start of the school year (think relay races; a scavenger hunt, and more!). This 7th grade connection event will be held during the THURSDAY (8/26) welcome and registration night from 5:30-7PM. Stop by to complete your paperwork, get a tour of the building, ask questions, and have a little fun!


We hope to see you there! If you have any questions specific to the 7th grade event, contact Mrs. Woof at awoofenden@mtrsd.org or Ms. Ruggeri (truggeri@mtrsd.org).
