5th Grade Transition to Middle School
Ms. Herd met with students this week to talk about their transition to O.W. Best next school year. Your child should have brought home a pink handout with information about middle school, including a school supply list for 6th grade. If your child did not bring home this handout, please visit Ms. Herd's website at http://sites.google.com/site/msherdswebsite/ to review the handout. There is a link at the bottom of the page titled "5th Grade Handout Handout." Additionally parents and students are encouraged to browse the O.W. Best Middle School homepage and read about courses for next year, school rules and policies, and other middle school related items that can be found here in order to prepare for middle school.
Save the Date: 6th Grade Parent and Student Orientation
If your child will be in 6th grade during the 2017-18 school year, please plan to attend the Parent and Student Orientation on August 30th at 6:00 p.m. in the O.W. Best Middle School Cafeteria. Your child will receive their schedule, meet their teachers, and tour the building again during this orientation while parents will attend an informational session with administrators and have an opportunity to ask questions. If you and your child cannot attend the orientation, they will receive their schedule on the first day of school.
