Dear Parents/Students,
     The start of middle school is an exciting time for students.  It's a bit scary at first, but give your son/daughter a few days and he/she should fit right in. During this year, your child will start to become more independent and responsible.  The 6th grade team understands your fears, as well as theirs, and will try to make this transition as smooth as possible.
      In my 26 years of teaching middle school,  I have found that good parent/student communication is crucial for a successful school year.  I look forward to meeting each and every one of you and working together this year.
