Congratulations on reaching the Junior High School! We are excited to be working with you during the next two years.


Moving from 6th grade to 7th grade can be a big adjustment.  Look for the following events to assist you and your parents/guardians in making the transition to junior high school.

For Parents/Guardians:

Junior High Curriculum Night - Wednesday, April 25, 2018 at 6:45pm in the RJ Grey auditorium. There will be a presentation for about 45 minutes providing an overview of the school's teaming model, how we support students and families in the transition and some basic "nuts and bolts" about the registration process. Immediately following the presentation, representatives from our different departments and support programs will be stationed at information tables located throughout our main lobby, and available to answer questions you might have.

6th Grade Parent Tours - Thursday, April 26th between 9 am and 12 pm.  Meet with Mr. Shen in the RJ Grey library for a brief informational overview followed by a tour of the school given by current RJ Grey students. 

6th Grade Parent Forum- Monday, April 30th from 7:00 to 8:00 pm in the RJ Grey Library.  A panel including parents of current and former junior high students will answer questions about what it's like to support your children as they transition to junior high school.

7th Grade Registration Packets - will be sent home for each child from their 6th grade school the week of April 9, 2018. Please be on the lookout for this important information, we kindly ask that you return the registration form to your child's teacher by the deadline.

Course Selection - To assist families with some choices that are available at the Junior High, our District has produced a "Understanding Course Selection" document that explains both the Junior and High School curricula, and sequence of courses that a student may experience from grade 7 through 12.

For Students:

Elementary School Visits - During the week of April 9th, members of the RJ Grey staff  will visit with each of the elementary schools to talk about life at RJ Grey and answer any of your questions.

Step Up Visits - In early June, all the 6th graders from each Elementary Schools will visit RJ Grey for an informational session and a tour of our school. 

First Day of School - The first day of school for seventh graders is Tuesday, September 4th. They will have the building all to themselves, as eighth graders start school the following day.  Seventh graders will meet their teachers and teammates through a variety of fun activities, including a BBQ.  They will receive another tour of the building, get introduced to adults they will be working with and get a lot of locker practice!!
