5th Grade Orientation will be held at 5:30 on August 3 at the MS. Parents and students are encouraged to attend to meet teachers and hear a little more about what to expect in 5th grade. The event will be held in the gym with seating in the bleachers and on the floor (bring a blanket!) so that we can spread out and social distance. See you there!
