8th-9th Grade Transition Toolkit

The move from middle to high school stirs up many emotions for teenagers, ranging from excitement and anticipation to fear and anxiety. It is natural for students to have numerous concerns and worries related to the procedural, social, and academic changes coming their way. Many concerns will leave them within the first weeks of school, while others can last into the second semester and beyond. During the last year of middle school, parents and teachers can work together to help prepare students for a successful ninth grade year by addressing the concerns and worries that students have.

Parent Toolkit is a one-stop resource developed with parents in mind. This toolkit will support families in supporting healthy and successful children who can succeed in many areas – in the classroom, on the court, and in their relationships with peers and adults.
