Hello Families of 5th Graders,
I am Ms. Stass and I am the school guidance counselor. This year your child will be applying to Middle School and I will be supporting you and your student with this process. Ms. Johnson, the parent coordinator, as well as the 5th grade teachers will also be here for you in this endeavor.
As you all know, everything is a bit different this year.😳 In the past, the enrollment office has already opened up the process of applying to middle school by this time in the year, but things are going to be pushed back a bit this year to give families plenty of time to make their choices with the information they need.
There is nothing required of you yet, but if you want to get started here are a few things you can do:
In addition, middle schools will be doing all of their tours and open houses virtually this year. As soon as I get information about them, I will alert families.
I will keep you all posted as information comes in.
Please don't hesitate to reach out to me with any questions or concerns. My office hours are Wednesdays from 8:10-8:45, but I am available by appointment at other times. Here is my contact information, as well as Melissa Johnson's.
