One of the main questions I always get is "What do I need to do to prepare for middle school?"
Here, you will find out about things you need to do this summer to be ready.

School Supply


You will, of course, need supplies for all of your classes. Some of your supplies will be only yours, and some you will give to your homeroom teacher. The supply list will tell you everything you need.


6th graders are required to complete summer reading. You should be prepared to be able to discuss the summer reading during the first couple of weeks of school. You will also be expected to complete a project or test based on the summer reading. Your English Language Arts teachers will explain this to you in more detail in August.

6th graders will have their own locker! Lockers will be assigned during the first week of school. This new territory is exacting, but comes with some responsibility. The first responsible thing to do is to buy a lock and practice using it. Don't worry if you can't get it quite right by August- we'll be there to help you! 

Students will provide their own lock for their locker. It can be a key lock or combination lock. There are so many styles- it's important that you choose a lock that you are comfortable with! If you choose a combination lock, check out the link below on tips on how to work it.
