Families of Current 5th Grade Students

  • Planning for middle school will soon begin, and we look forward to working with you and your child during this important transition process.

    Each student will be assigned to leveled sixth-grade courses in English, reading, and mathematics. The levels are Accelerated Honors, Honors, and Grade Level. 

    The district will use a combination of data points, including teacher recommendations, sixth-grade report card grades, and test scores, to place each student. Our goal is to ensure that coursework appropriately challenges each student. You will receive preliminary placement information in early May through the Parent Portal.

    You will have an opportunity to discuss the middle school transition process, including preliminary sixth-grade coursework, during parent-teacher conferences scheduled for March 8-10, 2023. You are also invited to attend a middle school information night on May 3, 2023, to learn more about the transition process from your soon to be middle school principal.

    Please see the reverse side of this letter for a detailed description of the middle school rigor levels.
