Incoming Sixth Grade Information
Dear 5th Grade Families,
We are very excited to begin the transition process to Rotolo Middle School for the 2017-2018 school year. Our goal is to support incoming sixth grade students and their parents in their transition to the middle school. Our first opportunity to get to know your child will take place the week of January 9 with visits to our elementary schools from Rotolo Middle School Counselors and Administration.
Please see the following schedule for the student presentation:
|January 11||Hoover-Wood Elementary School||J.B. Nelson Elementary School||Louise White Elementary School|
|January 12||H.C. Storm Elementary School||Grace McWayne Elementary School||Alice Gustafson Elementary School|
Please listen to this ScreenCastify for information about how to select courses for the upcoming school year.
Course Confirmation Information
Math and ELA placement will be communicated in May with course information. Course information will include Exploratory courses, Math, and ELA placement. Math and ELA course placement is determined using multiple MAP scores and historical data trends.
