Welcome to middle school—that’s what staff and teachers at School District 27J’s four middle schools want to say to incoming sixth grade students for next year.
When students move up to attend middle school, there can be a time of transition for both students and parents.
All current fifth grade students headed into middle school next year and their parents are invited to middle school open houses scheduled this spring.
Here is the middle school open house schedule:
Vikan Middle School, 879 Jessup St., will have an open house on Thursday, March 31 from 6-7:30 p.m. For info., call 303-655-4050.
Prairie View Middle School, 12915 E. 120th Ave., will have an open house on Wednesday, April 6 from 7-8:30 p.m. For info., call 720-685-5400.
Overland Trail Middle School, 455 N. 19th Ave., will have an open house on Tuesday, April 19 from 6-7:30 p.m. For info., call 303-655-4000.
Stuart Middle School, 15955 E. 101st Way, will have open house on Tuesday, May 3 at 5:30 p.m. For info., call 720-685-5500.
At the open houses, parents can get information about how to check a student’s homework due dates and to check grades. The open houses will also tell parents how they can be involved at their student’s middle school and how to best communicate with middle school teachers. Middle School sports registration information is also available.
