District Transition/Orientation Day (grade 5 students transitioning to Grade 6)

May 19

District Transition/ Orientation Day is an afternoon allocated to schools to support the transitions from Elem to Middle and Middle to High schools.  In normal years, students in grade 5 would spend the afternoon at their “next year” middle school and those in grade 8 would spend the afternoon at their “next year” high school.   This would include probably tours, meet the P/VP, probabaly an assembly, etc.

At middle it typically looks like:

  • Meet in the gym, intro to the school, meet the P/VP, some staff
  • Then go into groups and do an active  tour – see the  home ecc and cook an egg, see wood shop, drama, etc. learn to open a lock and see a locker, see what a schedule might look like, see the office and fill out late slip, etc.  those kinds of things.
  • End up back at the gym for a closing something.

Middle to high would be similar but more program driven. Ex. If you are in the CSE, gifted, challenge, aviation, etc.
