23/24 Incoming 6th Grade Information
Dear Parents and Caregivers of Rising 6th Graders,
It is hard to believe it is time to begin planning for your student’s transition to 6th grade. On behalf of the staff, I am very excited to welcome your child to Miles River Middle School. As middle school educators, we know that the transition from fifth to sixth grade is an exciting one, but it is also full of many unknowns. In order to help alleviate any potential uncertainty surrounding the move to middle school, we have a number of activities prepared for you and your child.
Please feel free to reach out if you have any questions, or to let us know of anything that may be on your mind as you prepare for this exciting time in your child’s life.
May 3rd: 8:00am - 9:00am virtual only
This full day event, led by our peer leaders, gives our new 6th grade students an opportunity to acclimate to the middle school when no other students are in the building. Students will visit their classrooms and meet their teachers, and will also participate in a number of team building activities. Bus transportation and a cookout lunch will be provided.
