Information about 6th Grade Registration

 Middle school parent packet 2018

The 6th grade course registration process has begun, and we want to make everything go as smoothly as possible…we know it can be a lot if this is your first experience with middle school. We got you! Ms. Guelig, our school counselor, has prepared a Middle School Registration Packet filled with everything you will need to know about registering your child for 6th grade courses. There is even a checklist so you can keep it all straight!


Hungary Creek is our feeder school…IF YOUR CHILD WILL NOT ATTEND HUNGARY CREEK NEXT YEAR, Please let Ms. Guelig know so that she can reach out to another middle school for information.


 IMPORTANT: Please make every effort to attend the Hungary Creek Curriculum Fair next week…Thursday, January 18th at 6:00pm.  This is a great opportunity to see Hungary Creek and and learn about courses for next year! 

Thank you!

Back to School Conversation Tips!

Whether your child is starting school for the first time or if your child is returning for another fantastic year, the first month of school can be both exciting and stressful for kids…and parents. Asking open-ended questions is a great way to find out more about your child’s first weeks and get a feel for how they are transitioning. Below are some awesome conversation starters, take a look!


Avoid These Questions

Try These Instead

  • How was school?
  • What’s the biggest difference between this year and last year?
  • Did you have fun at school?
  • What was the best thing you did at school?
  • Who did you sit with?
  • Tell me the names of the four kids who sat closest to you.
  • Was your teacher nice?
  • What was the most interesting thing your teacher said today?
  • What class rules did your teacher say are important?
  • What did your teacher say she likes to do?
  • Did your teacher go over the daily schedule with the class?
  • What is the best thing about your daily schedule?
  • Did you have everything you needed for school?
  • Was there anything you wish you had at school that you didn’t have today?
  • Were the kids in your class nice?
  • Who did you enjoy talking with the most?
  • Did anyone have anything fun or interesting to talk about?
  • Did you get your schedule?
  • Which days look best on your schedule?
  • Are your friends in your classes?
  • Tell me two kids you remember from each class.
  • Was the work hard?
  • What was the best thing your teacher asked you to do in ______ today?
  • Did you play with anyone at recess?
  • What were most kids doing at recess?
  • What was the best game at recess?
