MIDDLE SCHOOL ONLY
- Grade 5 Transition Day
Just a reminder that Wednesday the grade 5 students will be joining the middle school kids. So be aware the hallways may be a little more chaotic, the yard will be even more crowded for people on playground duty, lunch lines will be a little longer, and there may be some lost kids about. Please be a smiling face, make sure the younger kids feel welcome, and everyone has a chance to play basketball. (Ms. Madrid)
