Stepping Up to the Middle School

We recognize that the move from the Great Works School to the Middle School can be an exciting and somewhat daunting venture. Our goal is to help ease the anxiety of the transition so that every student can start the school year feeling positive and enthusiastic.

All incoming 6th graders are invited to our school for a half day for Step-Up Day. Step-Up Day provides the opportunity for 5th graders to check out our school, meet the grade 6 teachers, office staff, and allied arts teachers. Students eat lunch in the cafeteria and practice rotating between classrooms and teachers to get a feel for what it will be like for them in the fall.

We are looking forward to welcoming you and your child to the Middle School!
