The purpose of the transition days is to surround students with successful strategies before the end of this school year as we prepare for next year. We recognize the importance of students developing positive relationships early on with new teachers, other school adults, and fellow students. The goal of this day is to help remove some of the anxiety barriers many students face, even if they’re attending the same school the following year. The transition time is geared to help minimize some of the jitters students experience when moving to a new grade or school. With only a few weeks left, we want students to ease into the summer months and feel familiar with their new school. Back-to-school events will come later in the summer. 

All District schools collaborated together so transition activities will occur at the same time. Students will be accompanied by teachers and school staff as they switch classrooms or schools during the morning on their designated day.
