Dear Incoming 6th grade Family:
It is with great enthusiasm that I welcome you to the 2018-2019 school-year at Stephen A. Halsey Junior High School 157Q. I would like to invite you to attend the 6th Grade Orientation on Wednesday, August 29th at 9:30 a.m. Please bring your child’s 5th grade report card indicating his or her 6th grade class assignment.
The introductory session will begin promptly in the auditorium. Following the introductory session, students will have the opportunity to familiarize themselves with the building layout and visit classrooms. In addition to participating in classroom tours, students will visit the gymnasium and will have the opportunity to purchase gym uniforms and locks. At the conclusion of the touring session, at approximately 11:30AM, parents are invited back to join their children in the school yard to enjoy light refreshments. This will give parents and 6th grade students an opportunity to meet and socialize.
The goal of our 6th Grade Orientation is to assist students in acclimating to the middle school environment. I look forward to building a partnership with you, so that together, with our dedicated faculty and staff, I can maximize your child’s middle school experience. As our students enter this next phase of their educational journey, our team will strive to provide opportunities that are memorable, academically rigorous, and that will prepare them to be lifelong learners.
I look forward to meeting your family on August 29th, 2018.
