• Rising 6th Grade Information - Check back often for updates

    Your child will be recommended for core courses (language arts, math, science, and social studies) as well as any support services that are received (IEP, 504, ESL). Your child will also be able to select elective courses. These courses are not required subject areas like reading and math, but instead are optional courses that may be of interest to your child. Each middle school offers unique elective courses that your child can choose to take. Your child will choose his/her elective courses online using PowerSchool. Our school counselors will guide each student in this process, as the courses will be selected during the school day. This process will occur March 14 through April 6. You can see the classroom visit schedule here: Registration Schedule  Once students have selected their elective courses, you will receive a course verification sheet to review and approve during the week of April 14.

    We encourage you to review the elective course options available to your child prior to the course selection period.  You can view the electives offered at your child’s assigned middle school, as well as information about math courses by visiting www.wcpss.net/rising6th Additionally, you will find the WCPSS Middle School Program Planning Guide helpful in answering any questions you may have about the courses offered in middle school.

    Each middle school will be hosting its own Rising 6th Grade parent night. These dates and times are still being finalized. As we hear of dates and times, we will post them here: Middle School Open Houses  Please be sure to confirm whether the sessions are in person or virtual by checking the middle school website for updates.

    We look forward to supporting your child during this exciting transition to middle school. If you have questions throughout this process, please reach out to our school counselors Ms. Carpino (lcarpino@wcpss.net) or Ms. Krauss (jkrauss@wcpss.net).
