Please contact the Guidance Office with any questions or concerns that you have about your child entering middle school, whether you are just moving to Greene or have a student entering the 6th grade.
The following services are provided in order to best meet your child's needs as he or she transitions to the 6th grade or moves into the school district:
5th Grade Parent Orientation--Held in the spring, this is an informational night for parents and students that provides a general overview of what to expect as children enter middle school.
Visit to the 5th Grade Classrooms--Spring visits to 5th grade classes in order to give all students a detailed picture of what their experience in middle school will look like. 5th Grade Visit to the Middle School--In June, all students come to the middle school and meet their 6th grade teachers and receive a tour of the middle school.Summer Orientation--Small group orientation for all 6th graders in August. At this time, students will receive a copy of their schedule, have opportunities to practice navigating the hallways from classroom to classroom, and participate in a variety of activities designed to help them become more comfortable with the building. Separate orientations are provided for new students entering the district. Information about summer orientation can be found at the Middle School Counseling home page.
New Student Support--If you are new to Greene, start by contacting the guidance office to enroll your child. Once your child has enrolled, you may arrange for an individual tour of the school before he or she starts. Your child will be supported on the first day of school by a group of middle school students in his/her grade who will help to ensure that he or she is able to find his/her way around the building without difficulty.
**If your child is struggling with the transition to Greene, either as a 6th grade student or transfer student, please contact the middle school so that we can provide him or her with the supports necessary to be successful at Greene Middle School**
