The transition from elementary to middle school means a new building, new friends, new teachers, new procedures & routines. To ease the transition, each middle school will be hosting elementary feeder school visits after MAP testing (end of April or early in May). Each middle school will also host a 6th grade orientation in the spring or during registration in August. The STEAM summer school program would be a great way to immerse incoming 7th graders into middle school by meeting teachers, making new friends and learning procedures and expectations at the middle school level.
If you are new to St. Joseph or new to the St. Joseph School District, please call your home school to schedule a visit. We are excited that your student has joined us for middle school and look forward to partnering with you to support a smooth transition to their next level of learning. Several links are provided below as a reference to learn more about each school.
