6th Grade Back to School Day 
Monday, August 31, 2015


This year, our sixth grade students will be starting school one day early (August 31st) and have the whole school to themselves. This will allow for them to meet their teachers, get tours, learn the rules of the school, get lockers, learn their combinations, etc. All without having any other grades around! The school day will be 8:00 – 1:30. Busses will be running that day (regular stops) and we will provide lunch! This is a great way for our sixth grade students to come to middle school, literally having a head start!

Students will still want to pick up their schedules on the 27th so that they know which classes they have when they come back for their first day on the 31st. Attendance will be taken this day and students are expected to attend.
