We are so excited to see everyone tomorrow (August 22nd) for Cougar Camp and “Meet the Teacher.”  When you arrive lists will be posted throughout the building with your child’s homeroom teacher.  You will need to check the list and report to homeroom to pick up your child’s schedule and begin the event.  Please review the information below regarding the event to help you navigate throughout the day.

There will be an opportunity to visit classrooms, meet teachers, counselors, and administration, get acquainted with other 6th graders, and participate in activities to make the transition to middle school as seamless as possible.  Parents should plan to attend in order to meet teachers, counselors, and administration, sign-up for PowerSchool access, discuss transportation, join the PTSA, Athletics, and Arts Boosters, and much more.

Students will then be able to walk the building and find their classrooms and introduce themselves briefly to teachers and other staff.  Tables will be set-up for parents to sign-up for PowerSchool (if needed), access additional Transportation information beyond what was provided in the homeroom packet, and sign-up for PTSA, Athletics, and Arts Boosters.
