5th Grade Celebration Sign Up

Middle School Visitors

This morning we had some visitors in room 301! Mr. Olson, the principal at Baldwin Street Middle School, and Annika, a student from last year’s fifth-grade class, came to answer some of our questions about middle school. Your child received two handouts:

  • one including important dates for the middle school transition process
  • one listing some school supplies that your child will need to be successful in middle school

Please take the time to look over these together and keep them in a safe place. Questions about dates or other specifics from the handouts should be directed to the office at the middle school. They can be reached at (616)669-7750.

In the afternoon, music staff came to do some instrument fittings. Students received a packet of information about options for music next year. Please take a few minutes to look over this information as well.
